Keith Still has consulted on some of the world’s largest, and most challenging crowd safety projects. He has lectured at the UK Cabinet Office Emergency Planning College (EPC) where he contributed to a wide range of crowd safety related courses.

During his career Keith developed and used a range of sophisticated crowd modelling and simulation tools which have been used for the analysis of crowds in complex and built spaces for over two decades.

The objective of Keith’s research is to develop standards for crowd safety. Keith’s work remains true to that core principle.
