Director at Enodamus Ltd

Helen is an expert on road pavement surface characteristics and the factors influenced by road/tyre interaction: friction, noise, rolling resistance, splash/spray. 

She has worked extensively on surfacing materials and their relationship to collision risk, authoring the 2004 and 2015 updates of the UK resistance policy and developing the concept of the crash model (used to rank priority of sites with low skid resistance).

In 2018 she established Enodamus Ltd, with a mission to reduce harm from transport and interests in reducing non-exhaust particulate emissions and improving take-up of active modes of travel.
