Assistant Professor in Smart and Sustainable Urbanism, Trinity College Dublin
Federico Cugurullo is Assistant Professor in Smart and Sustainable Urbanism at Trinity College Dublin. His research is positioned at the intersection of urban geography, political philosophy and experimental urbanism, and explores how ideas of sustainability are cultivated and implemented, with a focus on projects for smart and eco-cities.
He is currently researching how artificial intelligence (AI) is impacting on urban governance and planning, thereby influencing the sustainability of cities.
Federico has done extensive empirical research in the Middle East and Southeast Asia where he has investigated the sustainability performance of supposedly experimental cities such as Masdar City in Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong. His work has been used by the United Nations and the United Kingdom's Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to foresee future urban challenges and develop preventive policies.
Building upon his empirical research on AI, Federico has contributed to the development of the theory of autonomous urbanism. Other theoretical contributions include the concept of urban eco-modernisation, the notion of urban artificial intelligence, the development of urban equations and the critical theory of Frankenstein Urbanism.
Before joining Trinity College Dublin, Federico held positions at the University of Manchester, King's College London and the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Lecturer at Global Systems Institute, University of Exeter
I'm a complexity scientist with experience modelling climate, energy systems and the economy.
I'm working on innovation in the energy system and the transition towards sustainable energy. I have been involved in the EEIST project led previously by Jean-Francois Mercure. The project seeks to inform energy policy in China, Brazil and India, as well as the UK and the EU. As part of this project, I've improved the representation of the power sector in the energy-economy-environment model E3ME-FTT. Major energy technologies in E3ME-FTT are represented with evolutionary economics, so that the diffusion of a new technology follows an S-curve. I've improved the power sector model by improving the representation of learning, getting higher-quality data and improve the representation of energy storage.
As a next step, I'm involved in developing a submodel of E3ME-FTT for flexibility, storage and hydrogen to gain a better understanding of the diffusion of high shares of variable renewables, and the way sector coupling can help. This should inform what type of policies are effective now that the major barriers towards diffusion are changing (supply chain / grid stability rather than costs)
I did my PhD within mathematics in the Exeter Climate Systems group with Peter Cox. It involved finding a theoretical basis for emergent constraints and improving (statistical) techniques. For some processes, a group of climate models shows a relationship between a past and future variable. Measurements of the first allows us to exploit this relationship and get a better estimate of our future climate. My focus was on decadal variability, historical warming and climate sensitivity.
