Wafaa Saleh is a Professor of Transport Engineering at the Transport Research Institute at Edinburgh Napier University (UK). She graduated from Newcastle University with a doctorate degree in modelling travel behaviour and transportation engineering. She teaches and researches in modelling travel behaviour, travel demand management and sustainability, traffic safety and accident management and transport and the environment. Wafaa is a Chartered Engineer (MICE) and a member of a number of national and international scientific committee’s editorial teams of transport and sustainability conferences and related academic Journals.  Recently, her research interest has extended to transportation problems in the Middle East; safety in particular. She is very keen to develop further research and collaborations in these areas.

  • Middle East Transport Research Centre
    TRI Middle East Transport Research Centre specifically targets transport research investigations and projects in the Middle East. Household structure, car ownership, income and travel characteristics in the Middle East are considered by many researchers to be different to those in the UK and...
  • Road Safety
    TRI has a well-established history of work in the road safety field particularly in cross thematic research where safety issues overlap with demand management, active travel, transport modelling and international sustainability.
  • Transport Modelling and transport demand management
    TRI has a long track record in the field of research on transport modelling. We work to make transport systems smarter, integrating advanced mathematical techniques with deep understanding of traveller behaviour. Our approach to modelling combine advanced traditional transport models with the new...
