Brighton CCA

A new centre for
contemporary arts at the
University of Brighton

This event is part of Expanding Dialogues: Arts and Engineering

Robert Morgan is a professor of Thermal Propulsion in the Advanced Engineering Centre at the University of Brighton. He joined Brighton in 2011 after eighteen years in industry, first with Ricardo then Ceres Power and finally as Chief Technical Officer at Highview Power Storage. His career has focused on novel propulsion technologies for transportation, fuel cells, thermal management, energy storage and cryogenic engineering. He has published over 60 articles and is named on 14 international patents. He is a founding member of the Brighton Impact Factory (IF). IF is an initiative that applies wicked & messy problem solving methodologies to engineering problems. In his inaugural lecture in 2019; ‘Embracing the Mess’ he described how recognising the messiness of some big problems such as climate change can result in innovation and high impact solutions. In this talk, he will discuss how artists and engineers could help each other clean up a mess.

This talk will take place both online and in person.
