Biography

Jethro is a research-focused chartered chemical engineer who works at the interface of academia and industry, with experience cutting across multinationals, start-ups and universities. He is a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge and holds positions at CMCL, a multi-award-winning SME, and as a Senior Research Associate in the Computational Modelling Group at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB), University of Cambridge.

Jethro has worked extensively with the Cambridge Centre for Advanced Research and Education in Singapore (CARES) to develop solutions to enable the cross-domain interoperability of data and models, with a focus on applications relating to sustainability and the energy transition.

He recently led work by CMCL to implement the first cross-sector digital twin of energy, water and telecoms infrastructure networks as part of the Climate Resilience Demonstrator (CReDo), which is a climate change adaptation digital twin demonstrator project developed by the National Digital Twin programme to improve resilience across infrastructure networks.

Jethro previously worked as a Senior Process Engineer in the Research and Development divisions of AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.
