Imperial College London
Professor Mike Barnes is Deputy Head of the Power & Energy Division in the School of Engineering at Manchester University
John is a Professor in Energy and Climate Policy at the Sustainable Research Institute (SRI), University of Leeds with over 20 years of experience in energy and climate policy. His research interests include energy demand, resource productivity, energy and economy modelling, carbon accounting and exploring low carbon transitions. John has been the Director of a number of large research centres that has employed a range of modelling approaches, including Multi-Regional Input-Output Models, to understand how changes in production and consumption can contribute to a low carbon future.
Jeremy Baumberg is Professor of NanoScience at the University of Cambridge, and leads centres of NanoPhotonics and a Centre for Doctoral Training in NanoTechnology.
Martin Baumers is Assistant Professor of Additive Manufacturing Management at the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) in the Faculty of Engineering. In his research, Martin focuses on the economics and efficient operation of AM as well as the benefits that can be derived from adopting the technology. Starting with his doctoral research, Martin's work has concentrated on the development of novel approaches to production costing and build time estimation. Further areas of interest are process selection, computational build volume packing and scheduling approaches and shape complexity measurement techniques. Martin also investigates the environmental sustainability of additive processes, with an emphasis on energy consumption, to assess whether AM provides a pathway to more sustainable manufacturing and more benign products. Recently, Martin has started investigating management in digital manufacturing settings from the ecosystems and platform perspectives.
