Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Rick Lupton is a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath. His work focuses on understanding dynamic systems, ranging in scale from the behaviour of wind turbine blades to global production and consumption of steel, using modelling, data analysis, Bayesian inference and data visualisation. He is particularly interested in the role physical resources play in driving carbon emissions and other environmental impacts, and using data science to identify opportunities to use materials more efficiently. His work aims to inform these issues in a transparent and reproducible way, and he is the author of several open-source software tools and a member of the Industrial Ecology Open Science working group.

Dr Lupton joined the University of Bath in 2019. He previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher with the Use Less Group at the University of Cambridge, on the Foreseer, WholeSEM and Material Demand Reduction projects. His PhD thesis was on frequency-domain modelling of floating offshore wind turbines, developing from experience at GL Garrad Hassan on wind turbine modelling.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

Dr Lupton is willing to supervise PhD students in these areas:

  • Systems analysis of carbon emissions, environmental impacts and physical resources
  • Floating wind turbine dynamics
  • Uncertainty and Bayesian inference related to these areas
  • Open Research for environment analysis
  • Data visualisation for climate mitigation opportunities
