Carl Khalife

Research Assistant

After undertaking an Undergraduate Research Placement with TSL during his time as a Civil & Environmental Engineering student at Imperial College London (MSc), Carl joined the group as a Research Assistant following the completion of an MSc in Analytics and Management at London Business School. Passionate about electrifying transport, Carl’s research focuses on the design of modern urban mobility platforms with a particular emphasis in advanced mathematical programming and agent-based simulation methods.

During his stay at TSL, Carl contributed to the developement of a systems-level approach to optimising urban air mobility networks, modelling the interactions between vertiport placement, vehicle sizing and dispatch strategy on the wider UAM system. His work aimed to inform policy-making in the development of emerging transportation concepts.
