Computational models for NPD

I am a professional engineering scientist specialising in computational modelling for product development. My research interests revolve around biomechanics modelling, numerical analysis and modelling, and engineering system analysis.

Prior to joining Callaghan Innovation, I gained extensive experience working in computational modelling for product development in the heavy and automotive industries. I played a key role in developing safety systems for popular car models. My expertise contributed to the design and implementation of these systems, ensuring the safety and protection of drivers and passengers. 

My current research is on the modelling of lattice structures in additive manufacturing. It promotes their applications in product design for enhancing engineering performance.
