Dr Alam, who also won the Science category of the ACT awards, was recognised for his research work in advanced air traffic systems, developing the Air Traffic Operations and Management Simulator.

“This award motivates me to further my research efforts towards enabling safe, efficient, robust and green air transportation,” says Dr Alam, of the School of Engineering and Information Technology.
