Elias is a doctoral researcher at the Transport Systems and Logistics Laboratory, Centre for Transport Studies at Imperial College London. His PhD research is centred around cooperative autonomous mobility (CAM) and entails contributing to designing and developing a CAM-based, next-generation traffic management and control system. Applications of interest include artificial intelligence for traffic control, agent-based modelling, and complex systems engineering. Elias is co-supervised by Dr Panagiotis Angeloudis, Prof Washington Ochieng, and Prof Mohammed Quddus.
Elias is also a data scientist at Capita, where he manages multiple projects across various sectors, including critical infrastructure, public health, defence, central government, and education. Further responsibilities include shaping and delivering Capita’s overall transport and smart cities strategies, building on its large-scale deployments such as TfL’s ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ). Before this, Elias designed the concept of operations of the UK’s largest trial of shared autonomous vehicles to date while working for the digital arm of the Borough of Greenwich.
Elias holds a Master’s degree (distinction) in Transport from Imperial College London and UCL (joint MSc) and a Bachelor’s degree (first-class) in civil and environmental engineering from the American University of Beirut.
