I am a Principal CFD Specialist Solution Architect at Amazon Web Services, with a particular focus on Computational Fluid Dynamics and High Performance Computing (HPC). I am also a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford and a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Previous to these positions I worked in Formula 1 with the Lotus F1 team (now Renault F1) and I worked with Formula 1 Management and the FIA on the 2021 technical regulation changes and I was also a core part of the British Cycling 2020 Tokyo Olympics bike development program
I am passionate about pushing the state of the art of CFD forward and ultimately enabling an entirely virtual engineering design process. I am a chartered engineer through the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and participate in a number of AIAA working groups including the High-Lift Prediction Workshop and the NASA/AIAA Turbulence Modelling Resource Website.
I was also the chair of the Tenth International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ICCFD10) . In 2019 I organised the 1st Automotive CFD Prediction Workshop which aimed to help academia and industry to understand future research directions and best-practices for the automotive community.
