Dr Jesus Lizana is a Marie Curie Fellow in the Energy and Power Group at the Department of Engineering Science. His research focuses on the cross-disciplinary challenges to support the transition towards low carbon climate-responsive buildings.
Dr Lizana earned his PhD in low-carbon buildings at the University of Seville in Spain, after completing a BSc in Architecture and MSc in Building Engineering. He is the recipient of prestigious and extensive research fellowships and projects, which allowed him to consolidate his postdoctoral stage through a “Juan de la Cierva” Fellowship at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA) at The University of Oxford; and address research stays at The University of Edinburgh, The Technical University of Munich and The University of Lisbon. Alongside his research career, it stands out his transfer capacity in industrial innovation and architecture projects in Spain, Morocco and Saudi Arabia.
At Oxford, Lizana is the leader of RESCOOL project, a H2020 Marie Curie Project focused on advanced building energy simulation to consider the thermal interactions with urban climate under climate change scenarios, aiming at supporting the climate-resilient design of cities under ever more frequent heatwaves. He also supports the interdisciplinary collaboration in the Future of Cooling Programme of the Oxford Martin School.
