As part of a collaboration with Arup Canada, we are studying how to make long term care homes safer if a fire occurs (are modelling work is currently described here). Several papers have recently been published which all can be accessed in the publications section. Stadiums are also a main focus for our human behavior research. Ingress and egress studies of large-scale sporting events at stadiums are being carried out to better understand the movement behavior of spectators and to provide validation for simulated models.
