Benjamin Jones is a tenured Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham Department of Architecture and Built Environment. He holds a Master's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Salford and was a Senior Software Engineer at BAE Systems before completing an Engineering Doctorate in Environmental Technologies at Brunel University. He was a Research Associate at University College London for two years before taking post at the University of Nottingham in the summer of 2013.
Benjamin is also a member of the Environment, People and Design (ePaD) Research Group.
The current focus of Benjamin's work is on analytical and modelling approaches to the indoor environment in the context of policy objectives to create a low-carbon building stock. He is particularly interested in the energy efficient ventilation of buildings. Benjamin has participated in a number of work programmes that involved building physics modelling, building stock energy demand modelling, and related interdisciplinary fields that provided strategic policy analysis to UK government departments, international organizations, and businesses. These have included a theoretical and empirical analysis of the use of natural ventilation technologies in school classrooms, an investigation of public health impacts in urban environments as a consequence of greenhouse gas emissions reduction strategies, and the prediction of distribution of infiltration rates across the English housing stock. Benjamin is a UK representative on the board of the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre, and the secretary of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers Natural Ventilation Group.
Benjamin currently supervises PhD students who are investigating energy and ventilation flows in buildings, and the health consequences of poor indoor air quality. Inquiries are welcome from potential PhD candidates with an outstanding academic record and mutual interests.
