The Transport Systems and Logistics Laboratory studies the algorithms and technologies that improve the efficiency of modern transport systems.

About us

TSL is led by Dr Panagiotis Angeloudis and is part of the Centre for Transport Studies at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London.

Our areas of interest include Networks, Logistics and Autonomy, which we study using mathematical optimisation, network analytics and artificial intelligence. We have a multidisciplinary team of researchers, and are always keen to recruit new members.

Research Areas


We study the structure of transport networks, and their vulnerability against disruptions.


We specialise in the analysis of urban, humanitarian and maritime freight transport.


We develop algorithms for the design and control of autonomous vehicle fleets.
