As we continue to expand our pipeline of projects in the UK and across the globe, we have welcomed eight new members to our UK team in the past year.
Clockwise from top left.
Dan has 17 years of experience in transport planning, with significant expertise in directing and managing transport projects in the UK, the Middle East and Latin America. His experience includes global sporting events, major station upgrades, interchange design planning, bus feasibility studies and rail investment programmes.
Hui has over 10 years of experience in evacuation modelling and human behaviour study. His responsibilities include designing and conducting experimental trials, data collection and analysis, and modelling to better understand human behaviour in evacuation. He is currently working on a range of research and consulting projects, ranging from building fire safety, large-scale disasters (wildfires) to human behaviour at major events.
Ewa is a Chartered Engineer with over 15 years of experience in people flow analysis. She is passionate about the railway industry including railway, metro stations and rolling stock design, but also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in other sectors and public space planning including education, airports and stadia.
Brandon specialises in applied cognition and human behaviour and is due to complete his PhD in Applied Psychology in 2023/2024. In addition, Brandon holds several research and advisory affiliations with the National Police Chief Council, Cybercrime Research Group and Collaboration of Forensic Interviewing. He has specialisms in decision-making, intelligence elicitation, communication and influence behaviour, and behavioural detection. He actively publishes across the field of intelligence, security, defence and emergency response, and presents research internationally.
Cameron joined us following the completion of his undergraduate degree in Human Geography (including an international year at the University of Queensland) and a Spatial Planning MSc. His interest in planning and designing for large crowds is reflected by his recent dissertation assessing the preliminary visions for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic Games.
Harry joined us after graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering. He completed his dissertation on the use of surveying equipment to track people movement within sports. Since our team, Harry has been involved with a number of projects including the crowd modelling of Wembley Stadium and Fulham FC’s Craven Cottage Stadium.
Vicente Ponsoda Juan
Vicente joined us after 6 years working at WSP. He is experienced in the use of microsimulation models (Pedestrian and Traffic) such as Legion, Viswalk, Vissim, Transyt and Linsig. His area of expertise is modelling the interaction between vehicles and pedestrians.
Steve joined us after completing an internship analysing people movement data for the UK Government’s Events Research Programme assessing the transmission of viruses in sports and cultural venues. Since then, he has worked on projects across a number of sectors, including conducting surveys to model crowd dynamics for Wembley Stadium and advising on sizing requirements of a major stadium upgrade.
