profileI am an academic and engineer specialising in Computational Aerodynamics, High Performance Computing (HPC) and turbulence modelling. I am a Senior Researcher at the Oxford Thermofluids Institute (OTI) at the University of Oxford. Previous to these positions I worked in Formula 1 with the Lotus F1 team (now Renault F1). I am passionate about developing and applying the next generation of models and tools to enable an entirely virtual engineering design process. In addition to CFD model development I also do aerodynamic design on a number of engineering projects.

My main research areas are in the Aerospace and Automotive sectors although I do quite a bit of work with motorsports and cycling.  stream4I am a chartered engineer through the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and participate in a number of AIAA working groups.

I recently setup the first ever Oxford University Formula Student team - you can follow their progress here. I am also the chair of the next ICCFD10 conference, see more details here.

I also enjoy contributing to various media outlets about more general science and technology developments, please see my articles page for recent publications.
