Research Summary

Dr Bani Anvari is the research leader of the Intelligent Mobility Group and Director of  IM Lab at UCL (IM @UCL). She is interested in the complexity of interactions and how intuitive, intelligent, human-centric and personalised control systems can influence it. Over the last 10 years, her research focus has been on Intelligent Mobility, with an emphasis on exploring driver and pedestrian interaction with semi- and fully-autonomous vehicles in different contexts (e.g., shared spaces, CAVs), an area of application that significantly benefits from Robotics and AI.

Teaching Summary

She is lecturing and coordinating two modules offered on UCL/Imperial College London's joint Transport MSc routes:
  • Transport Engineering and Operations (T3 / XIMP0005 / CIVE97118)
  • Road Traffic Theory and its Application (T8 / XIMP0008 / CIVE97123)
She is also lecturing "Theory of Traffic FLow" on MSc Mathematical Modelling at UCL.
