Dr Irene Josa I Cullere profile picture
  • Research Fellow ? Life Cycle Assessment of mineral-based construction materials
  • Dept of Civil, Environ &Geomatic Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

I am a Research Fellow at the Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Department at UCL. I am working with Dr Aiduan Borrion at the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Mineral-based Construction Materials (ICEC-MCM). My work is related to the assessment of environmental and social impacts of mineral-based construction materials using a circular economy perspective.


Prior to joining UCL, I was a researcher and lecturer at the Technical University of Catalonia (BarcelonaTECH), where I was involved in projects aiming at assessing environmental, social and economic impacts associated with civil engineering goods and services, such as environmental processes (i.e. wastewater treatment with bio-products recovery) or construction materials (i.e. mortars or 3D-printed concrete).


I hold a BSc and MSc in Civil Engineering from BarcelonaTECH, a MSc in Structural Engineering from Tongji University, a MSc in Human Rights from the Open University of Catalonia and a PhD in Construction Engineering from BarcelonaTECH.


Outside of university, I contribute to my field as a board member of the Catalan Association of Civil Engineers (Col┬Ělegi de Camins de Catalunya), as a member of several task groups of the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib) and as a member of Engineering without Borders Catalonia (ESF).

Research Summary

My research interests lie within the multifaceted nature of the intersection between infrastructure systems and sustainability. I would like to advance the understanding of technology's economic, environmental, and social implications.


In addition to academic projects, in the past, I have been involved in cooperation projects in Mozambique. In 2021 and 2022 I obtained funding for two projects dealing with environmental awareness (in Maputo), and access to water and food security with a gender perspective (in Inhambane), respectively.
