Staff Profile

Dr Paul Goodman

Researcher in Transport and the Environment



I joined the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences in September 2010 to work on the environmental appraisal of transport options on the UK EPSRC-funded ReVISIONS project, and the development of a city-wide carbon footprint for Leicester, UK, as part of the SUE 4M project.

Previously, I have worked on a number of transport and environment related projects, primarily within the fields of acoustics and local air-quality issues, across the UK and Europe.
