Prof. Andreas Schäfer
Andreas W. Schäfer is a Professor in Energy and Transport at University College London. Prior to this position, he held appointments at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of Cambridge, and Stanford University. He holds a MSc in Aerospace Engineering and a PhD in Energy Economics, both from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. He is lead author of “Transportation in a Climate-Constrained World” (MIT Press, 2009).

Dr. Lynnette Dray
Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge. Her research interests include transportation demand modelling, policy assessment, vehicle fleets and fleet turnover and model system integration. She is lead modeller in both the AIM and TOSCA (Technology Opportunities and Strategies toward Climate-friendly transport), and led the Policy Analysis work package of the TOSCA project; other recent work includes the Teamplay and MetaCDM EC FP7 projects on European aviation modelling and disruptive events.

Dr. Antony Evans
is a lecturer in Energy and Air Transport at the UCL Energy Institute. He was previously a postdoctoral researcher at Cambridge and at MIT, before being awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the NASA Ames Research Center Aviation Systems Division. Prior to his current post, he was a lecturer in Air Transport Management at City University London. He has also worked as a contractor for NASA and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). He has published widely on air transport systems, including airport capacity, airline operations, aviation and the environmental, and air traffic management.

Philip Krammer
Philip is a doctoral researcher at UCL with a focus on market-based approaches to emission reductions in the international aviation and maritime sector. He has an MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development from the University of Cambridge and previously worked as a business developer at Siemens and as an aircraft design engineer on Airbus projects and at the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
