Ritu is leading the development of a practice and focus on Sustainable Systems in Arup’s Foresight team. Her work explores the transformation required for future cities, infrastructure, and energy and resources to meet sustainability goals, often applying a systems approach to analyse and identify key areas for impact. Ritu focuses on helping decisionmakers across a range of sectors gain strategic insight into complex topics, enabling them to better manage risk and priorities, identify opportunities, and ultimately make more resilient and informed long-term decisions. She has over 10 years of experience working across multiple disciplines including city & transport planning and strategy, civil engineering, and energy and climate change policy for cities.
Prior to her work within our Foresight team, Ritu led planning and analysis to support decisions around and delivery of major transport infrastructure in large cities and urban regions. Key major projects she has worked on include Texas High Speed Rail, BART Extension to Livermore, Heathrow Third Runway Expansion Programme, and High Speed Rail 2/Network Rail Operations at London Euston Station.
