    CV

    Profile

    Research and technology focussed, with a history of problem solving and a strong analytical background. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and a PhD, focussing on materials modelling and FE analysis. My prior experience as a technical analyst for an investment company gives me a strong understanding of the commercial drivers behind the application of technology, as well as experience of presenting complex topics to both academic and non-technical audiences.

    My most recent role has been optimising the thermal management of electronics packaging for high temperature environments. This has required analytical, numerical and experimental approaches in order to optimise existing designs and develop novel solutions to engineering problems. Working alongside the mechanical and electronic design teams, I have achieved a 30% improvement in the performance of the cooling system, with no cost increase, and developed a novel packaging solution that offers around a 80% cost reduction with minimal impact on performance.
