Zoe O’Connor


Dr Zoe O’Connor is a Research Associate in the Centre for Logistics and Sustainability and is responsible for the development and maintenance of mathematical models for sustainable logistics operations.

One aspect of this involves modelling scenarios involving storage and transportation of cold-chain goods such as perishable food products or vaccines. Another aspect involves network models involving electric road systems, recharging electric vehicles, and refuelling hydrogen-powered vehicles.

This work aims to help industry agents and government bodies meet net-zero emissions targets by decarbonising the transportation network and reducing the reliance on fossil fuels.
