Andrew Chilvers


Andrew was a Research Associate at UCL STEaPP where, as well as contributing to the City Leadership Lab, he contributed to the policy and governance stream of the Liveable Cities programme. This is a five-year programme of research aimed at transforming engineering for cities to deliver local and global wellbeing whilst also delivering a low carbon, resource secure future.


Andrew draws from a background in environmental engineering and 5 year of research developing social studies of engineering practices. This research was sponsored by the global engineering and design consultancy, Arup, and contributed a series of ethnographic studies of engineers-in-practice. The particular focus was on the critical exploration of how engineers currently understand and engage with the appropriation of values in and through their practices, particularly where this related to leadership on issues of sustainability.


Andrew is the author of Engineers and Values (Morgan and Claypool).
