Rui Neiva is a former Policy Analyst at Eno, where he conducted research in aviation policy matters, as well as other areas. He was also the main researcher for Eno’s NextGen Working Group and is now responsible for the Aviation Working Group. Prior to joining Eno he received his Ph.D. in Public Policy from George Mason University where he studied the regulatory and institutional frameworks of Air Navigation Service Providers.

Besides his work in air traffic control policy, he has also worked in airport development and urban transit planning.

He has published in a number of peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Transport, Economics and Policy, the Journal of Air Transport Management, the International Journal of Transport Economics, and Applied Economics Letters. His book “Institutional Reform of Air Navigation Service Providers: A Historical and Economic Perspective” was released in late 2015 by Edward Elgar Publishing.
