I have been a Researcher at the University of Westminster since the 1990s and over this time I have specialised in a number of technical and economic projects in the field of transportation, mostly in Air Traffic Management (ATM).

My research's focus continues in the area of Air Traffic Management, with current and recent studies funded by organisations such as: EUROCONTROL (both EEC and HQ), SESAR Joint Undertaking, the European Commission (Horizon 2020), NATS, and the UK Department of Trade and Industry (now Department for Business, Innovation & Skills).

Research projects have included technical studies and cost-benefit analyses (e.g. Dynamic Cost Indexing), ATC benchmarking, and also behavioural studies.
