Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Woods is a Lecturer in the Aerospace Engineering Department at Bristol University.  His research focuses on the development of novel structural solutions to challenging problems in aerospace engineering.   This includes a broad range of work on morphing and adaptive aerostructures, development of low cost, ultra-efficient wound composite truss structures, novel energy storage and actuation methods, and reusable composite tooling solutions.   The research undertaken by Dr. Woods is concept driven and spans a range of disciplines including structures, aerodynamics, mechanics, kinematics, materials, optimization and design.  He uses a variety of analytical, numerical, and experimental tools and techniques to guide technologies from initial conception through increasing levels of technology readiness with a constant view towards commercialization and real world use.
