Jennifer Whyte is a Professor of Systems Integration in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London, where she is a Co-Director of the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation. Her work is on systems integration in the delivery of civil infrastructure, digital delivery of major infrastructure projects, and the interdependencies with existing infrastructure. She sits on the Construction Leadership Council Senior Advisory Group, and Transforming Construction Advisory Group. From 2015-2021 she held a Laing O’Rourke and Royal Academy of Engineering Professorship in Systems Integration. She teaches at MEng, MSc, CPD and Exec Ed. modules on business and project management, innovation in civil engineering; integrated digital delivery and design for manufacturing and assembly; and has published widely on these topics. She is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, and an Honorary Professor of Project Management at the John Grill Institute of Project Leadership at the University of Sydney. Imperial College London is a member of UKCRIC, and her work supports achieving their missions.
Neil Carhart is a Lecturer in Infrastructure Systems and Teaching Fellow at the University of Bristol as part of the International Centre for Infrastructure Futures (ICIF) and the Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre (QTEC).
Neil’s research includes investigating the planning and management of infrastructure interdependencies, the systemic resilience of infrastructure systems and infrastructure performance management.
This includes the exploration and use of Systems Theory and System Dynamics in organisational learning to improve safety, reliability and resilience. The University of Bristol is a member of UKCRIC, and his work supports achieving their missions.
Robin de Graaf
Robin is assistant professor at the department of Construction Management and Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente, the Netherlands and a member of the Systems Engineering Knowledge Centre Twente (SEKCT). He holds an MSc in Civil Engineering and a PhD in Strategic Urban Planning. His teaching, research and committee work primarily focus on Systems Engineering in the civil engineering industry.
Dr Ana Mijic
Ana is a Senior Lecturer in Water Systems Integration and a Co-Director of the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation. She is leading the development of novel systems tools focused on quantifying the interaction between the water cycle and sustainable development. The work has aim to inform regulatory bodies and water industry if and how we can support economic growth whilst ensuring sustainable water use and flood and water quality management under future uncertainties.
Through NERC Innovation Fellowship funding she woked with the UK Environment Agency to apply systems thinking and systemic approaches to understanding the catchment water system complexity of the Cumbria Catchment Pioneer. She has led the UK NERC CHANSE project on systems water management and irrigation water use in India. Currently, Ana is a Systems Analysis Lead for the UK NERC CAMELLIA impact programme, where her work is focused on the development of systems water management models that can represent the integrated water infrastructure planning system, and how grey and green infrastructure solutions and housing design can be integrated to contribute to the overall quality of life in cities.
Ana is a member of the EWRE Hydrology group that was awarded the 2019 Imperial President’s Award for Excellence in Research for Outstanding Research Team. Imperial College London is a member of UKCRIC, and her work supports achieving their missions.
