Energy Transitions Research at the University of Cambridge


To access your entry

Log in (top right-hand corner of the site).

Find your profile in the Research Directory and then click into Edit mode (to the right of View in the green bar at the top of the page).

At the top of the Edit Person screen there are 8 different tabs. You only need to look at 4 of these; Basic Information, Professional Information, Contact Information, and Categorization.


1. Basic Information

Access Account ID
This must be your CRS ID, or the ID you use to access University systems if you work for Cambridge Assessment or the MRC (not your email address if this is different).

Just upload the jpeg from your desktop. The formatting is done automatically.

The rest of the categories should be straightforward!


2. Professional Information

Areas of interest
Provide a brief summary of your main areas of interest (one per line). Please try to highlight areas which are particularly relevant to the Energy community.

There are also "keywords" at the bottom of this page, which will appear as bullet points on your profile page. The keywords are generic, drawn from a list used across the Directory as a whole. The areas of interest field provides an opportunity to add, in summary form, information which is specific to you.

Job titles
Depending on your role, it may not be necessary to repeat the name of your department in this field. For example, if your title is Professor in Information Engineering, and you have selected The Department of Engineering as your institution there is no need to put the name of the department again in the Job titles field. Instances where you might want to add the name of the department include where you have a split affiliation, or one of your roles is Head of Department, or you have a job title such as University Lecturer which doesn't include your affiliation.

Add links to any sites which provide more information about you or your research. Best limited to one or two key sites.

Research themes
This provides an option to align with one of the core research themes for the Energy@Cambridge initiative. These will already have been set up from your original form, and if you need to add to, or change them, you will need to email us at

Options to list both internal and external collaborators, both self-explanatory.

Research interests
A brief paragraph is enough.

N.B. If you are cutting and pasting information from another website, please use the "Paste as text" option in the editing bar to strip out any formatting. (To do this you copy the original text, then click on the icon in the editing bar with a T on it. This opens a new window, which you paste the text into. You then click "insert", and the cleaned-up text is added to the window.)

Key publications
Please pick the ones which are most relevant for Energy if your core area of research falls outside this area.

As above, please use the "Paste as text" option if you are cutting and pasting from another website.

The keywords in this field are not the same ones that are picked up by the keyword searches within the site (more on this below). Data in the keywords field just appears as a list of bullet points on your profile page.

This is a managed list. Please look through the whole list and select the items that are most appropriate for you. To select multiple items use either ctrl + click  or cmd + click, depending on whether you are a Mac or PC user. If there is an area of research which isn't covered, then you can add it in the "new tags" box on the right, but before you add a new tag for, say, CCS, please make sure that Carbon Capture and Storage isn't already on the list. If you have any questions, please email


3. Contact Information

This should be a Cambridge University email address but doesn't have to be the same as your Access Account ID on the Basic Information page ie could be or similar.

Office phone
Include all dialling codes for external callers (+44) (0) 1223, etc.


4. Categorization

When someone searches the Directory by keyword, the information pulls through from this Categorization section. You need to tag yourself with all the terms you want to be searched on, so it's fine to tick several boxes.

As with the keywords, this is a managed list.  As administrator I'll be keeping an eye on the list and I'm able to delete or merge tags where there is overlap, but please could you scan the whole list before creating new tags.

Ignore the Location and Language boxes on the Categorization page.
