Teaching

I work extensively on the Institution of Railway Operators degree and diploma educational programme. I wrote the SCQF Level 9 (degree) texts on Operational Planning, Economics, and Managing Operations and the SCQF Level 8 (diploma) text on Railway Business Organisation. I tutor degree-level students on Operational Planning, and Economics. For the IRO, I have also planned and delivered one-day and weekend courses on Operational Planning and Economics.

I have lectured at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands, and contributed lectures on railway operations planning to Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses on Railway Infrastructure at Nottingham Trent University. I have given a number of conference papers on cost-effective approaches to performance simulation and system capacity.
