Research interests

David Harrison holds a Chair in Design in the School of Engineering and Design. He is a Chartered Engineer and has been an investigator on nineteen EPSRC grants, eight of these as principal investigator. (http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewPerson.aspx?PersonId=38911). He has research interests in sustainable design and printed electronics, and is a Member of the IET, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

He has worked for fifteen years on innovative approaches to electronic manufacturing, and working closely with Dr Peter Evans, he has developed, patented and successfully licensed a number of new manufacturing processes in printed electronics, yielding approximately £300,000 of license income for Brunel. He is a co investigator with the EPSRC Innovative Electronics Manufacturing Research Centre, with particular interests in reducing the environmental impact of electronics manufacturing. He served on the EPSRC/DTI Sustainable Technologies Initiative panel for three years, and was a Member of the EPSRC College of Peers for fourteen years.

David Harrison founded the Cleaner Electronics research group in 1994. Their work on renewable energy has included projects on the design of daylight capture systems, regenerative energy storage systems based on hydrogen fuel cells, and the design of low cost thermoelectric devices. The group has also carried out many research projects in environmentally sensitive design, including the first ecological footprinting of electronic products, and the development of a method for calculating the optimal ecological lifetimes for products, based on analysis of build energy and energy consumption. David Harrison was also a co investigator on two EPSRC projects on the Active Disassembly of products for recycling. He led the second phase of a large Framework 5 project on Active Disassembly, in close partnership with Sony and Nokia, and was a partner on “Paperworks”, a Framework 6 project integrating the digital world with paper.

One current project is the  EPSRC/TSB Empower project, being carried out with More Associates and Warwick Manufacturing Group, which has the aim to integrate creative, empathic user-centred design techniques with genuinely novel product design innovation, to reduce energy use in commercial buildings. This has developed out of a PhD project in which Daniel Lockton developed the “Design with Intent” method, a suggestion tool offering guidance to designers in choosing design techniques to encourage more sustainable behaviour.

Two current EngD projects with Buro Happold Consulting Engineers are:

Lifecycle impacts of novel retrofit technologies incorporating translucent silica aerogel – with Mark Dowson. The aim is to design, build and characterise a new retrofitable building product which reduces the energy use of buildings.

The influence of user interface design on energy consumption in UK residential buildings –with Nicola Combe. A project investigating tools and methods to support sustainable and inclusive aspects of building design.
