Dr. Jonathan Cullen

University of Cambridge

Dr. Jonathan Cullen is a University Lecturer in Energy, Transport and Urban Infrastructure at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Fitzwilliam College. He leads the Resource Efficiency Collective at Cambridge. He studied Chemical and Process Engineering at the Univerisity of Canterbury (NZ).

After 10 years working in industry and in development work in Peru, he moved to Cambridge for the MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development. Jonathan then completed a PhD with the title Engineering Fundamentals of Energy Efficiency before taking up the role of Research Associate. Jonathan’s research interests include whole energy systems and energy and material demand reduction. His energy research aims to characterise physical efficiency limits for energy devices, systems and services and to provide consistent frameworks for evaluating energy demand reduction options and emissions abatement strategies. Jonathan also works on material efficiency options for reducing demand for materials. This work is described in the book, Sustainable Materials: with both eyes open (available for free download).
