Dr André Cabrera Serrenho is an Assistant Professor in Sustainable Development at the Department of Engineering.

He is a Fellow and Engineering Director of Studies at Clare College.


Dr Serrenho is exploring new ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a faster pace to meet international climate pledges. This involves identifying new configurations of energy and material systems to supply our future needs with less demand and emissions. André has been working on whole-systems analysis to enable future housing and mobility of people and freight without emissions (UK FIRES project) and to produce, use and dispose of petrochemicals without emissions (C-THRU project). André is also interested in the development of systems dynamic modelling tools to link the flows and stocks of water, energy, food and climate systems (REXUS project).


Research interests

Resource efficiency, climate change mitigation, dynamic systems analysis, environmental assessment.


Current Research projects

UK FIRES, EPSRC Programme Grant to locate resource efficiency at the heart of future industrial strategy.

C-THRU, a VKRF grant to deliver foresight on the opportunities for intervention in the petrochemical sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
