work experience

My career has revolved around combustion engine technology since 1992, working with Orbital Engine Company developing two-stroke and four-stroke direct-injection engines for various applications. I spent over a decade in the UK, Europe and India working for the likes of Ricardo, Cosworth and Prodrive on development projects ranging from 50cc scooters to V12 supercars, from hands-on roles to managing engineering teams of a dozen people, with budgets spanning shoe-strings to several million pounds. Whilst my core experience is actually in electronic control system application, I enjoy the creative side of mechanical design and excel in turning ideas on their heads, reducing parts count, improving packaging, manufacturability and utility. I am self-taught in SolidWorks since 2006 and have continuously expanded my knowledge base into FEA and some experimental CFD work, with a continuing focus on engine technology.
