Tim is a passionate Aerospace Engineer with experience in aerodynamic and aircraft design across a range of Mach numbers (low-Reynolds number regimes up to hypersonic). He is currently studying accelerated optimisation and design methods for low-boom supersonic wing design using surrogate-assisted techniques for his PhD at the Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University, under a Japanese government scholarship. Previously, he worked as an Aeromechanics Engineer at Airbus Group Innovations, developing methods for rapid buffet prediction and coupled aero-structural design and simulation of high aspect-ratio and folding transonic wings. Prior to that, he completed his MSc in Aerospace Vehicle Design at Cranfield University in 2014.
