Director of the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge
Dr Jennifer Schooling is Director of the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC), at the University of Cambridge. CSIC collaborates with industry to demonstrate how better data and information can be used to improve our understanding of the performance of built assets, leading to better design, construction and asset management practices.
Jennifer is passionate about changing the way the infrastructure and construction industries view data, to become a vital asset in its own right, and as an engineering tool for tackling the key challenges facing our industry, including climate change, resource constraint and resilience. She is a member of the Infrastructure Client Group’s Digital Transformation Task group (DTTG) and was founding Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Smart Infrastructure and Construction Proceedings journal (ICE). She was lead author of the Carbon Reduction Code for the Built Environment.
Jennifer was awarded the OBE for services to engineering and digital construction in 2019, and was the recipient of the 2019 ICE President’s Medal. She has a PhD in Materials Science from the University of Cambridge.
