Personal profile

Research interests

I work in the Electrical Energy Management Group at the university of Bristol. My experimental research focuses on understanding and predicting the performance and health of mechanical system elements which are crucial to the safe and efficient operation of electro-mechanical and power-transmission systems. I have experience of working collaboratively with partners from the automotive, aerospace and high-performance sport sectors. I have a number of years experience in developing high accuracy test systems for very low-loss mechanical compnents such as chain drives and bearings.

I have a wider interest in the use of online system identification and prediction to facilitate real-time systems optimisation. My work on these ideas has focussed on the mobility sector, especially the trade-off between energy management and harmful emissions in real-world driving for vehicles with advanced (electrified) powertrain topologies and the implications that testing methodologies such as the new RDE regulations have for quoted vs. real-world performance. In this context, I also have an interest in driver behaviour and human-in-the-loop control.
