I am an early career researcher in the built environment. My work is interdisciplinary: I bring together the worlds of architecture, applied mathematics and engineering to improve how we make decisions about our built environment.

I have two roles at Cardiff University. Firstly, as a Research Assistant role for the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) team at the Welsh School of Architecture, sharing findings about whole house energy system retrofit. Secondly, as a Research Student completing a PhD in Architecture, where I am building a new Decision Support System to help plan social housing retrofit.

Feel free to reach out or get in touch.







Low Carbon Built Environment

In the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) research team, our work applies system thinking to the built environment: combining renewable energy supply, energy storage and demand reduction technologies to deliver replicable and affordable low-carbon solutions. Amid both the climate emergency and energy price crisis, this work is needed more than ever before: not only driving down operational carbon and cost but ensuring that solutions are robust and work in combination.

PhD Architecture

Alongside my role on the LCBE project, I am registered as a Research Student within the school. My focus is on building a new Decision Support System to help plan social housing retrofit, which will be delivered over the next three years.

My Interests

My personal research interests include building performance simulation and low-energy buildings, being particularly interested in the application of mathematical modelling and data-driven methods to our built environment. These methods include using simulation, data quality assessment, building information modelling and machine learning, all for deeper and more accurate insights about building performance.


I am engaged in occasional teaching, including about data analysis and dynamic building energy simulation.


Jack Morewood is a Research Student based within the Welsh School of Architecture and Research Assistant on the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) programme.

Within his role, Jack contributes research within the areas of data analysis, communication and dissemination to promote the LCBE programme. This involves working on data analysis, publications, case studies.

Prior to joining the university, Jack worked in industry in a mathematical modeller role, supporting the decarbonisation of surgical services and productivity of operating theatres. Previous to this work, he held a Research Assistant role on the Innovate UK SMART Grant project Hospital Operations for Sustainable Productivity (HOSP) at the University of Plymouth. Most recently in academia, he completed occasional lecturing for the built environment programme at Plymouth as a Visiting Specialist.

Jack was awarded an MSc from the University of Plymouth in High Performance Buildings and graduated from the University of Exeter in Mathematics with Economics as an undergraduate.
