Dr Huw Woodward is a Research Associate at the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London. His research focuses on pollution dispersion modelling. This includes work for DEFRA using the UK Integrated Assessment Model (UKIAM) to estimate future projections of UK air quality and ecosystem health, and also research as a member of the MAGIC project. The MAGIC project is an EPSRC funded collaboration between Imperial College, Cambridge University and the University of Surrey, with the aim of improving our understanding of the connection between indoor and outdoor air quality. Huw’s focus within the project is on microscale dispersion modelling, using computational fluid dynamics to investigate the effect of features such as traffic induced turbulence, trees and roof geometry on the dispersion of pollutants within urban areas.
Huw completed his PhD in fracture mechanics at the University of Manchester where he developed an innovative method for the fast solution of crack propagation in structures. This work was funded by the EPSRC and EDF.
