Personal profile


Dr Jonathan Nixon is the Associate Director at Coventry University’s Research Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling. He gained his PhD from Aston University whilst working on hybrid solar-biomass power plants and, since then, he has carried out a range of research projects on solar, wind and bio energy technologies, with a particular focus on improving their performance and reliability for disadvantaged communities. From 2018 to 2021, he was the co-investigator on the Humanitarian Engineering and Energy for Displacement (EP/P029531/1) project, developing smart solar energy interventions in refugee camps and displaced settlements for improved control and management of shared communal energy resources.


Working in the Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling, Dr Nixon’s research explores interdisciplinary engineering methods to advance and promote the uptake of renewable energy systems. He has a particular interest in energy systems modelling and optimisation techniques to arrive at more cost-efficient carbon reduction solutions. He is currently leading three PhD projects on optimising anaerobic digestion systems, micro-grid load shedding and the design of linear solar concentrators.
