Interests

His research investigates the trade-off between taxi time and fuel consumption in airport ground movements (EP/H004424/2), and proposed the Active Routing (AR) concept. AR forms the cornerstone of a major ongoing EPSRC funded project (EP/N029496/1, EP/N029356/1 and EP/N029577/1, in total in excess of £1M) for which he is the lead PI (with BAEs, Air France-KLM, Rolls Royce, Manchester and Zurich Airports, and Simio). He has also been the PI on four industrial projects with Anglian Water, and was the CI on three Innovate UK projects (with IMS, Tesco and Siemens). From 2016 he served as an associate member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
