Gavin Killip is Professor of Buildings & Energy Policy at Nottingham Trent University and an Honorary Research Associate at the Department of Education’s Research Centre for Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (SKOPE).

Gavin’s research is motivated by finding solutions to climate change, particularly in relation to energy efficiency and energy systems in buildings and cities. He has an interest in the development of supply chains and business models, which intersects with issues around jobs and training in the construction sector. Gavin has previously collaborated with SKOPE colleagues on the state of provision for construction training in the FE sector. He has worked with innovators in the construction sector on new courses and with industry bodies on the wider policy context for the energy system and the built environment.

Gavin was previously a Senior Researcher at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford before taking up a professorship in the School of Architecture Design & Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University. As an Honorary Research Associate, Gavin seeks to deepen the existing links with SKOPE, bringing closer together the research on construction skills and the practice of HE and FE on the ground.
