I am an experienced engineer, specialising in fluid dynamics in the aerospace and maritime domains. My core skills are meshing, setting up, executing and post processing flow solutions and structural models, using primarily ANSYS and STAR-CCM+ software. My other skills include practical testing of fluid dynamic models, engineering design, structural engineering, metrology, turbomachinery and additive manufacturing.
During my time at university I had a particular interest in Aerodynamics, my final year project was on Hypersonic Aerodynamic Design. This course has alarge computational fluid dynamics element, I also gained experience in fabrication, including milling, turning and MIG welding
I spend my spare time playing bass, cooking and eating weird and wonderful food and I do a lot of hiking. I build computers and home automation electronics using Arduino, Raspberry Pi and 3D printing. I also maintain a home server that functions as a NAS device, media centre and the web server that this website is hosted on!
