University of Leeds
Jonathan joined the team at the University of Leeds in October 2018, having previously worked in the area of industrial energy demand reduction whilst part of the Centre for Industrial Energy, Materials and Products (CIEMAP) at the University of Bath. Jonathan’s academic background is in Mechanical Engineering and his research often has a strong quantitative basis, although he takes an interdisciplinary approach where possible. His interests lie in a broad, systems, approach to the question of how energy and resource efficiency can best contribute to energy demand reduction in the industrial sector. Rather than be tied to a particular methodology he prefers to use the tools and techniques most appropriate to the task. His current work builds on experience within CIEMAP, as well as a UK Energy Research Centre project (Industrial Energy Use from a Bottom-Up Perspective) and during his PhD (Industrial Energy Use and Improvement Potential). Outside of this area he has worked as a manufacturing engineer within industry and within bioenergy research.
