Roger Teoh is a PhD postgraduate student studying at Centre for Transport Studies in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College London. He received a BEng degree in Civil Engineering with First Class Honours from The University of Manchester (June 2015), followed by an MSc in Transport witih Distinction from Imperial College London (September 2016).
Roger's current research interests is on Aviation and Climate Change, with the aim to assess the feasibility of minimising the climate impact of aircraft contrails and induced cirrus cloudiness through Air Traffic Management procedures. His work is largely quantitative and modelling based, which includes the modelling of aircraft fuel consumption, soot particle mass and number emissions, and the climate impact of contrails.
In addition, Roger is also interested in urban planning and the global factors affecting motorised modal shares in cities, in particular, to evaluate the conditions and barriers for cities to reduce automobile dependence and promote the usage of sustainable transport modes.
