Dr Ian Skinner is an independent researcher and consultant with over 20 years of experience in undertaking projects focusing on the environmental impacts of transport.

His PhD from University College London was on the implementation of sustainable transport policies in South East England and he has also undertaken research at the University of Kent on the external costs of transport.

Since his PhD, Ian has worked at the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) and AEA (now Ricardo Energy & Environment) before founding TEPR in 2009.
