You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals -Marie Curie

Jerson joined BPIE in March 2023 as a Researcher

He considers that the transformation of the energy and building sectors is crucial to achieve the sustainable development of urban regions while enabling social innovation, decarbonization of many of our daily activities, and the creation of livable spaces for everyone.

Jerson studied Electrical engineering in Colombia. Later, his interest in buildings and energy led him to focus his masters’ studies at the university of Campinas in Brazil on the integration of microgrids and smart buildings. Prior to joining BPIE, Jerson was a researcher at the Civil systems engineering institute at TU Berlin, where he focused on the building renovation field and the digitalization of the construction industry.

Jerson also conducted his doctoral research at TU Berlin. As part of his dissertation, he developed a decision-making framework and a set of knowledge models to support a more comprehensive renovation of buildings, considering not only technical and economic aspects, but also social elements. Jerson considers that technical solutions and policy strategies to tackle climate challenges should thoroughly consider the social aspects of the context where they are meant to be implemented.

In his free time, Jerson enjoys playing volleyball, painting, and walking around Berlin with his camera.
