I obtained a First Class degree in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Edinburgh in 2016. I then worked for Bosch Rexroth as an Application Engineer for two years. In this role I was responsible for aspects of product development of hydraulic radial piston motors. I left Rexroth in 2018 to start my PhD at the University of Strathclyde. My research project is investigating new techniques for the topology optimisation of hydraulic devices.
I am interested in how artificial intelligence can be applied to solve practical mechanical design optimisation problems. In particular I am interested in strucutral topology optimisation and how neuroevolution can be used to improve upon existing algorithms. It is the goal of my project to apply these new techniques to the design optimisation of hydraulic devices.
My research is focused on developing useful tools and techniques that can be used by design engineers to enhance the design development process. The techniques may be used to improve existing designs or explore completely new possibilities.
