Jonathan Chambers is a post-doctoral researcher at the Chair for Energy efficiency within the Institute for Environmental Sciences (ISE) of University of Geneva. He works on the themes of energy efficiency in buildings and districts, with particular focus on domestic building thermal efficiency. He completed his Ph.D. at the Energy Institute of the University College London. This research aimed to develop a data-driven method for the thermal characterisation of dwellings, scalable to large datasets of smart-meter data in the United Kingdom, and was supported by EDF Energy R&D UK. His research interests include big-data driven simulation and inference methods for energy datasets, using methods drawing from physics, statistics, and data science disciplines. He has an interest in development of software for open and reproducible science.

Jonathan also holds an M.Sc. in Energy Science and Technology from ETH Zurich, and a B.Sc. in Physics with Philosophy from Durham University (UK). He has experience in concentrating solar power from projects at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and Airlight Energy (Biasca, CH). He has also worked for software-driven start-ups on data-science and simulation topics in domestic and industrial energy use at BEN Energy (Zurich) and Adaptricity (Zurich).
