Imperial College London , Laing O'Rourke/Royal Academy of Engineering professor of systems integration
Jennifer Whyte is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. Her research focus is on systems integration in civil infrastructure; in particular in the integrated digital delivery of major infrastructure projects. Such projects are organizationally complex, delivering both physical assets and digital asset information. Her ambition is to develop nextgeneration methods and tools that enable project practitioners to make better decisions. Recent interests include the use of structured asset information in the digital twin, and the potential of rich digital data in design for manufacture, assembly, predictive maintenance, etc. At Imperial College London, she is Director of the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation and Royal Academy of Engineering / Laing O’Rourke Professor in Systems Integration. She also leads the ‘Data-driven Design under Uncertainty’ Grand Challenge in the Lloyds Register Foundation/Alan Turing Institute ‘Data-Centric Engineering’ Programme. She teaches on innovation in civil engineering. She is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers; and co-curator of the World Economic Forum ‘Engineering and Construction’ transformation map.
