Summary: Climate change is being addressed from both mitigation and adaptation perspectives. The transportation sector makes significant contribution to air pollution and also suffers much from climate change risks, including flooding, heatwaves, and storms. This presentation aim is to introduce 1) the new studies on climate mitigation via a UK EPSRC (engineering physics and science research council) project and 2) climate adaptation through an ERC (European research council) project within the transport context. It will help understand the state of the art of the relevant research and inspire new ideas.

Short BioZaili Yang (杨再励)is Professor of Maritime Transport at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), UK and Co-Director of Liverpool Logistics, Offshore and Marine Research Institute. Zaili received his BEng in Maritime Transportation from Dalian Maritime University, China, in 2001, MSc in International Transport from Cardiff University, UK, in 2003, and PhD in Maritime Safety from LJMU, UK, in 2006.

Zaili’s research interest is risk analysis of maritime transport networks. Internationally, he is among the most productive scholars in the areas of “Maritime Risk/Safety (1st)” in terms of the core journal publications on WoS, with the quality of research outcomes demonstrated by his research awards (e.g. 14 paper awards). As the PI, he is leading 4 on-going projects (totaling over £2.5m), including a prestigious ERC consolidator grant. Zaili has published 150 long journal papers and trained 7 postdoctoral researchers and 32 PhD students. He serves 11 transport journals as an Associate Editor/EDM (e.g. Transportation Research Part E), acts as the advisor for the UK Government Office for Science, and an evaluator of over 10 national/international research councils (e.g. USA (NSF), UK (EPSRC, EPSRC, MRC), Norway (NRC), Canada (SSHRC) and Netherlands (NWO)).
