Engineering Science appoints Jack Umenberger

1 January 2024

We are pleased to announce that Dr Jack Umenberger will be joining the ZERO Institute in January 2024 in the Department of Engineering Science. 

Jack is a Department Lecturer with the Department of Engineering Science, in the Control Group. His current research interests lie at the intersection of control theory, optimisation, and machine learning, with applications to energy systems, robotics, and automation.

The ZERO Institute was launched by the Departments of Engineering Science, Materials, and Geography and the Environment in 2022 to bring together leading academics from a range of disciplines to address questions surrounding zero-energy systems and their implementation. It aims to establish Oxford as a centre of research excellence and thought leadership on global and equitable zero-carbon transition and has secured a £3.25m investment from the University’s Strategic Research Fund.
