Professor Richard Darton
Richard Darton is Professor of Engineering Science and Senior Research Fellow and Tutor in Chemical Engineering at Keble College, University of Oxford. Current research interests lie in the use of metrics for multi attribute quantification of complex issues started with his work in an expert group which produced the Institution of Chemical Engineers’ widely used Sustainability Metrics for manufacturing operations. Subsequently he has worked on methodologies for creating sets of indicators, with applications in palm oil, and motor car transport systems, and on the public acceptability of sustainable energy technologies which have influence on the landscape. He is involved with Oxford’s work on geoengineering in the James Martin Institute of the 21st Century (funded, but yet to be announced), building on his expertise in resource efficiency and large-scale chemical engineering processes. In November 2005 he gave the Hartley Lecture at the Royal Society on the subject of Sustainability Metrics.
