Dr Tim Ryley
Dr Tim Ryley is a Senior Lecturer in Transport Studies at Loughborough University, with over eighteen years of transport research experience (including at the Transport Research Laboratory and the Transport Research Institute, Napier University). Since joining Loughborough University in 2004, he has successfully led a series of transport research projects across surface and air transport applications. Research led by Dr Ryley tends to have strong environmental imperatives to reduce travel demand and carbon emissions.
Between 2006 and 2009 Dr Ryley led three major air travel projects: Propensity to Fly, INDICATOR (both funded by EPSRC) and Public engagement on aviation taxes (funded by the Sustainable Development Commission). Dr Ryley developed this research further through the leadership of two major projects relating to the transport applications of airport surface access journeys (EPSRC ‘ABC’ project 2009-2012), and Demand Responsive Transport (EPSRC ‘DRT for DRT’ project 2010-2013). Dr Ryley is also a Co-Investigator on a major transport / climate project (EPSRC ‘FUTURENET’ project 2009-2013), with a role to examine mobility along a transport corridor (London-Glasgow), and the EPSRC ‘AETN’ project (2009-2012).
Dr Ryley is the Programme Director for the two undergraduate transport programmes (BSc Air Transport Management, BSc Transport and Business Management). Between 2007 and 2012 he was the Admissions Tutor for these two programmes. Dr Ryley manages and teaches three 10-credit modules on the undergraduate transport degree programmes (UG: BSc Air Transport Management, BSc Transport & Business Management) and teaches half of a 15-credit module on the postgraduate transport degree programme (PG: Transport) at Loughborough University. The four modules are:
UG Part A: Transport Demand and Human Need
UG Part B: Transport and the Environment
UG Part C: Travel Behaviour
PG: Transport Planning (within Transport Policy and Planning module)
