Associate Professor (Civil Struct & Env. Eng.)
CIVIL ENGINEERING BUILDING (NEW)


Dr Caulfield joined the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering in 2008. Since joining the Department Dr Caulfield has embarked on an intensive research program addressing global issues such as the environmental impacts of transport and methods to reduce the carbon impacts of transport and in 2017 he addressed the Irish Citizens Assembly on this topic. He is currently advising the Climate Change Advisory Council on pathways to decreasing transport emissions by 2030. Dr Caulfield has published over 150 papers in these areas in high impact international journals and international conferences and to date has been awarded aprox. €2.2 million in research funding (from EPA, SFI, FP7, CEDR, NRA, DTTAS and RSA). He currently has 4 PhD students and 3 postdoctoral researchers in his research group. Dr Caulfield also a member of a number of National and International research groups and is the former Chair of the Irish Transportation Research Network and sits on the executive committee of the Universities Transport Studies Group as well as several committees at the Transportation Research Board in Washington D.C. He is an Associate Editor of Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews (impact factor: 11.239) and is a member of the International Editorial Board of Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment (impact factor: 4.412), Case Studies on Transport Policy (impact factor: 1.580), Transport Policy (impact factor: 3.430) and the Journal of Transport Geography (impact factor: 4.473). Dr Caulfield coordinates the SS Civil Engineering year and is the School of Engineering coordinator of the SS year industrial placement.
