Previous Experience:

Goal for UH23:

My aim is to work with Alex Wood on optimising the aerodynamics package as much as possible through CFD, whilst also investigating the efficiency of the cooling system for the accumulator and motors. As the lead of future aerodynamic developments, I aim to work with Level 6 students to investigate aerodynamic design concepts and how best to utilise them for future UH Racing cars.
