I am a Chartered Environmentalist a Chartered Scientist and currently a Senior Lecturer in Transport and Sustainability at Newcastle University. I have special interest in traffic emissions and air quality. My research also covers the issue of air quality and health with a special focus on the personal exposure of population to air pollution. I am also involved in research on environmental justice and links between air quality, social deprivation and health. My research bridges the gap between engineering, and medical and social sciences.
I am a visiting professor at the Anna University, Chennai, India.
I have been involved in environmental assessment of many land-use and transport policies and have been involved in developing a platform PITHEM (Platform for Integrated Traffic, Health and Emission Modelling) to facilitate this. PITHEM facilitates modelling and mapping of traffic emissions (CO2, other gaseous pollutants and particles), noise and air quality. I am also involved in research on developing self conserving urban environments (SECURE project) and measuring, modelling, mapping and managing carbon footprint of a city (4M project). Currently I am the principal investigator for joint UK-India project CADTIME (Clean Air for Delhi Through Interventions, Mitigations and Engagement). Am also involved in LC-TRANSFORM project to provide and integrated planning and deployment strategy for multi-purpose low carbon fleets and its enabling infrastructure in UK and Chinese cities.
I have developed software for multi-criteria decision analysis of transport scenarios producing strategic environmental and health assessments. The modelling tools have previously been applied to address sustainability issues associated with local and regional land use and transport policies. I have been actively engaged in international research and has close links with academics and researchers in India, China, USA, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Tanzania.

#. NERC CADTIME (Clean Air for Delhi Through Interventions, Mitigations and Engagement)
The Clean Air for Delhi Through Interventions, Mitigations and Engagement (CADTIME) project aims to understand what is required to deliver significant reductions in levels of air pollution, within the confines of factors which are under our control, through affordable, effective interventions that consider and respond to future changes. CADTIME brings together a consortium of institutions and experts from across both India and the United Kingdom with the goal of addressing air quality issues that affect people's health in Delhi. This goal will be achieved through the development of an Integrated Action Plan (IAP), detailing strategies and potential interventions for mitigating air pollution in both the city, and surrounding region. The IAP will be based on development of a sound understanding of the current contributing factors to air pollution across the domestic, transport, industrial and agricultural sectors, for Delhi, as well as forecasting of how those sectors will change across the short, medium and long terms.

#EPSRC - CORONA: City Observatory Research platfOrm for iNnovation and Analytics (to start 2018)
The UKCRIC programme comprises three strands of activity: research laboratories, modelling and simulation, and an £8m investment in equipment to establish a suite of Urban Observatories (UOs). CORONA will demonstrate how the internationally unique UOs provide new and unprecedented understanding about urban processes, and their interactions, across sectors and scales and therefore how they improve engineering and planning decisions. CORONA will deliver a series of early UKCRIC (UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities) research outcomes that are needed to provide the structural framework for both processes (governance, standards, entrepreneurship) and the technological instruments (data standards, technology, integrating quantitative and qualitative urban monitoring data) essential to the UKCRIC UOs.
#. EPSRC LC TRANSFORM (Low Carbon Transitions of Fleet Operations in Metropolitan Sites)
LC TRANSFORMS utilises and shares between the research partners the wealth of data and knowledge already gathered in previous and on-going projects as a foundation on operation, use, carbon reduction potential and best business practice for low carbon fleets.
#. Public Health England and Fresh Smoke Free North East supported research on exposure of children to second-hand smoke in vehicles
This research provided evidence in support of the new Law which has been passed in England and Wales effective from 1st October which bans smoking in vehicles with anyone under 18 present. The research was widely covered in local, regional, national and international media. Here are some of the links to follow the coverage:

#. EPSRC SUE Project SECURE (SElf Conserving Urban Environments)
The SECURE project addresses the grand challenge of integrating greater conservation and more efficient resource utilisation across scales to meet future urban demands. SECURE is developing a Regional Urbanisation Model that synthesises resource-supply-demand-waste systems from city and local authorities to regional scales via the integration of three themes - Urbanisation (land use and transport), Building and Energy (supply and demand) and Ecosystem Services (the benefits humans receive from ecosystems).
The SECURE project comprises five Work Packages. The first three focus on the main research areas, Urbanisation, Ecosystem Services, and Building and Energy. Work Package 4 addresses the issue of Societal Impact and Professional Engagement, ensuring that stakeholders are fully engaged both in terms of the technical development of the Base Case (2011) and Projection (2016), and public acceptability of longer term Scenarios (2030/2050). Work Package 5, Integration of Policies Across Themes, ensures that the policies identified and developed throughout the course of the project are fully integrated, both in terms of their proposed design and implementation, and their overall impact in meeting the project objectives.
#. UKIERI Project - NAMPSER (Newcastle and Mumbai Partnership on Sustainability and Environment Research)
Collaborators: Newcastle University, UK and IIT Bombay, India
The main aim of this project is to develop collaboration between Newcastle University and IIT Bombay on topics dealing with some of the most challenging issues faced by developed and developing countries alike viz. traffic congestion, air pollution and health. This will involve exchange of academic and research staff and postgraduate students working together to contribute complementary skills to currently on-going projects and to carry out some pilot studies leading to the development of joint research proposals and publications. This will enhance ongoing efforts to strengthen current practice in India/UK involving urban administrative authorities and regulatory agencies for sustained and holistic approach to traffic and air quality management.
#. EPSRC Global SECURE Project
In collaboration with the Peking University and Wuhan University, China.
International engagement to focus on crucial technological challenges which can support substantial energy reductions and a supply of clean, secure energy. To enhance existing UK-China research relationships, build new links with the top universities in China, and strengthen the competitiveness of Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the UK and China. The project is highly relevant to the UK government’s energy strategy to secure the future energy supply and achieve national targets for greenhouse gas emissions.
#. EPSRC SUE Project 4M (Measurement, Modelling, Mapping and Management
An Evidence-Based Methodology for Understanding and Shrinking the Urban Carbon Footprint). 2008-2012. The 4M project seeks to investigate how much carbon the city produces - and looks at ways it can be cut. It seeks to place calculations of the Carbon Footprint of cities on a secure platform and produce a carbon emissions inventory for the whole city of Leicester. Four topic areas are being studied: building energy, reduction of emissions and pollution from transport, carbon sequestration rates and impact of personal carbon quotas. The project is in partnership with De Montfort, Leicester, Loughborough, Sheffield and Leeds universities.
#. EPSRC SUE Project ReVISIONS (Regional Visions of Integrated Sustainable Infrastructure Optimised for NeighbourhoodS)
2008-2012. ReVISIONS project is in collaboration with Cambridge, Newcastle, Exeter, Leeds universities and Imperial College London. In ReVISIONS, the research will be carried out within an integrated modelling framework to understand how regional 'top down' spatial development policies would affect the size and densities of settlements and identify the most sustainable combinations of infrastructure at different spatial scales and locations. My role in ReVISIONS would be in environmental modelling and overall assessment of various options. Each option will be assessed across a wide range of criteria encompassing the environmental impacts, use of resources, economy, social inclusion, and health.
#. EPSRC SUE Project. SOLUTIONS (Sustainability Of Land Use and Transport In Outer NeighbourhoodS). 2004-2009.
main aim of the SOLUTIONS project was to develop generic guidance to support the planning, design and implementation of sustainable land use and transport strategies in peri-urban areas that experience high pressure for growth. SOLUTIONS was a collaborative project with Cambridge University, University of West England, University of Leeds and University College London. The principal research questions that SOLUTIONS answered was how far, and by what means, can towns and cities be planned so they are socially inclusive, economically efficient and environmentally sustainable. See a key publication on the findings here.
