Professor Washington Yotto Ochieng is the Head of the Centre for Transport Studies and Chair in Positioning and Navigation Systems at Imperial College London. In 2013, Professor Ochieng was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) in recognition of his exceptional contribution to engineering. He holds a PhD degree in Civil Engineering (Space Geodesy) from the University of Nottingham. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the UK Institutions of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, Royal Institute of Navigation and Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors.

Professor Ochieng's research and development interests are in positioning and navigation, geospatial and geomatic engineering, Air Traffic Management (ATM) and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). He has made significant contributions to major international projects including the design of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) and GALILEO, GNSS measurement error modeling, specification of aircraft trajectory management tools for the Single European Sky's ATM Research (SESAR) program, and integrated positioning and navigation systems for many applications including ITS.
