Biography

In June 2015, Rawia joined the University of Huddersfield as a Research Fellow. Rawia obtained a PhD in Transport Network Resilience from the Institute of Transport Studies, University of Leeds and an MSc with Distinction in Energy and Environment from the Faculty of Environment, University of Leeds. Rawia’s first degree was a BSc (Hons) in Civil Engineering.

Rawia was awarded a number of awards as a recognition of her research  quality and innovation  during her PhD period as listed below:

  • A golden Medal winner in the Transport Research Arena  Conference,  Athens, 2012.
  • The ITS Researcher of the Year, Institute of Transport Studies, University of Leeds, 2012.
  • Received special commendation for outstanding research, The ten ‘Women of Achievement’ Event, University of Leeds, 2013.

Research and Scholarship

Rawia has joined the University’s research activities as part of the Strategic Partnership between the Rail Safety and Standards Board and the Institute of Railway Research. Rawia currently works in On Train Monitoring and Recording (OTMR) aiming to identify Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs) for behaviour of drivers from OTMR data and recording systems. She is also investigating the implementation of these SPIs across passenger train operating companies.

Rawia obtained a number of scholarships during her research career, for example, White Rose PhD scholarship (2010-2014) and EPSRC scholarship for MSc degree (2008-2009).
