Analysing networks and supply chains to enable sustainable and resilient mobility.
We build very large-scale models of transport systems to understand supply chains, the roles that transport systems have in supporting economic activities and the potential disruption from transport failures. We study road, rail and shipping networks. We are experts in employing of large transport datasets, which we have used to build network models in several countries and globally. We have used these models to quantify the risks to transport networks from climatic extremes and to prioritize investments in resilience
