- Thermal management of carbon composites for space applications (Masters Research project): The purpose of this project was to prove the concept of an integrated cooling system in composite laminates.
- Airbus Fixed-Wing Aircraft Design (3rd Year Group Design Project): The objective was to design all aspects of a new aircraft that would fill a future gap in the market for a medium range, 220-seat civil airliner. My specialisations were concept selection, systems architecture, cockpit design and flight control systems. I presented our proposed design, on behalf of my group, to academics and engineers from Airbus and Rolls Royce.
