Scott is experienced in the field of environmental engineering with interests that include the characterisation of emissions to air from industrial, road traffic and other sources, and the assessment of such sources on ambient concentrations using a variety of dispersion modelling approaches (e.g. DMRB, ADMS, ADMS Roads, AERMOD). Scott leads Ricardo Energy & Environment’s Urban Scale Air Quality Assessment team that undertakes city and local scale air quality management assessments associated with proposed development planning applications in the land-use planning regime. The team’s work includes the impacts on air quality of sources as diverse as small biomass boilers, large power stations and all modes of transport. Scott’s experience is reflected in demand for his expertise as a trainer on air quality management through programmes such as the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s EMAQ training programme, which is endorsed by the UK’s Institute of Air Quality Management.
