Professor Nick Tyler CBE FREng is the Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering at UCL
and the Director of the UCL Centre for Transport Studies. His £50M massive (40,000m3)
multiscale multisensorial laboratory allows him and his team to study the interactions of
environments, people and their activities at life-scale – including how people walk in urban
environments. PEARL is the part of the UK national research facility for infrastructure and
cities (UKCRIC). He is a co-investigator of the UCL Ecological Brain Doctoral Training
Programme. Nick combines highly diverse fields in his research, from civil/transport
engineering and architecture to neuroscience, psychology, physiology, ophthalmology,
audiology, orthopaedics, lighting, sound and acoustics. His research extends to projects in
Latin America, Japan and Europe. Nick is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering,
the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation,
and the Royal Society of Arts, and was appointed CBE in 2011.
Nick Tyler has over 250 publications, 250 presentations, >4,250 citations (Google Scholar). He was awarded the 2021
Richard Trevithick Fund Prize, of the Institution of Civil engineers, the 2015 Ruskin Medal of
the Institute of Spectacle Makers for the best paper in vision sciences in 2015 and the 2015
James Hill Prize of the Institution of Civil Engineers (Journal Prize for best paper in Municipal
