    Dr Rupert Myers

Rupert J. Myers is a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering: Industrial Ecology at the University of Edinburgh, a Guest Academic at the University of Melbourne, and in October will take up the role of Lecturer in Sustainable Materials Engineering at Imperial College London. He has worked in various engineering and science disciplines and locations, from Melbourne to Sheffield, EMPA, UC Berkeley, Yale, MIT, Edinburgh, and ICL, but always with a mission to reduce environmental burdens through sustainable engineering. Dr Myers currently champions this mission by leading University learning in industrial ecology, and by focussing his research on globally pervasive materials that are virtually unmatched in importance to society, such as cement and metals. In 2015 he was awarded the Mike Sellars Medal for best PhD thesis in the University of Sheffield’s Department of Materials Science & Engineering.
