I received my MEng in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford. Following this, after a time as a stress engineer at EADS-Astrium in the telecommunications satellite division, I then returned to academia to complete a PhD in the design of multistable structures at the University of Cambridge. I remained at Cambridge as a Research Associate in the Deployable Structures Laboratory until moving to Imperial College as a Lecturer in 2008, Senior Lecturer in 2013, and Reader in Aerospace Structures in 2019.
My research interests include:
- Adaptive/Deployable/Morphing Aerospace Systems
- Flexible Composite Materials
- Image-based Measurement
- Design Optimization
- Multistable Structures and Materials
- Compliant Structures and Materials
