I have a passion for learning new things and understanding the impact of human knowledge on shaping the world in which we live. This passion led me down the path of becoming a mechanical engineer.

My involvement with the AMRC, my industrial sponsor and the Dynamics Research Group are invaluable for realising my goals; I feel very lucky to be conducting my doctoral studies within this environment in Sheffield.

During my physics undergraduate, my Masters project was in conjunction with the AMRC. After seeing the incredible facilities of the AMRC mixed with my own passion for both the application and development of technology, I knew I had to pursue an EngD position.

I would like to improve my experience with composite materials because I enjoy researching this area. At the same time, I would like to increase my knowledge about Finite Element programs, which I find really interesting.

I wanted to continue in academia for a while longer while also gaining experience in industry. An EngD is a great half-way house between academia and industry particularly for those wanting to go into  industry afterwards.

I wanted to do an EngD because I enjoy keeping the end customer in view whilst I complete the application-focused research, particularly if it is an aerospace company!

Continued development is very important to me, and undertaking an EngD provides the opportunity to learn and train whilst applying knowledge to real industrial problems.
