Research Assistant (Project AIMMER)
An Intergrated Model for Maritime Emission (AIMMER). International shipping has been increasingly committed to addressing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. An emission projection model to predict the GHG emissions from international shipping is crucial to policy makers and maritime industry stakeholders in positioning themselves in this global environmental issue. Numerous R&D projects have been invested for developing appropriate technologies for emission mitigation from shipping.
