Originally from Australia, my interest in advanced composites developed from working in various engineering functions at Boeing Aerostructures Australia (BAA) and Boeing Research & Technology – Australia (BR&T–A).
My interest in this material led me to pursue a PhD in composites manufacturing. Composites process simulation is a niche research discipline. I am inspired that my research will contribute to demystifying (and de-risking!) empirical composites manufacturing practice through the use of fundamental scientific knowledge.
When I’m not focused on the ‘big picture’ with respect to composites manufacturing research, I enjoy watching foreign films, dancing and exploring British Columbia.
Composite process design & modeling.
Knowledge management, technology management, risk management.
Advanced analytics, big-data, decision theory, uncertainty theory.
Product & production scaling, ‘effect-of-defects’, manufacturing outcomes.
