Tracey Navaei is a postgraduate research student in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

She completed her BSc (Hons) Fire Safety and Management at Leeds University, and on completion of this worked for a large Fire Alarm manufacturing company for over a decade as an Engineer/Designer. During this period, she continued her studies at Ulster University and obtained an MSc in Fire Safety Engineering. Following a family break she returned to work as a Carbon Footprint Analyst for a large furniture company, where she stayed for over 8 years before deciding to return to full time study. She is very excited to be undertaking a PhD which encompasses carbon accounting as  she is very passionate about environmental issues, particularly global warming.

The subject of the PhD is the study of carbon emissions with regard to Network Rail's geotechnical solutions across the UK mainline railway. As part of this research she will be looking to quantify and monetise the carbon contribution of each standard detail. She will also be investigating the carbon offset schemes required to offset these emissions. The outcome of the project will be a tool for assessing the above to help Network Rail demonstrate their journey towards becoming carbon neutral.
