Year of Study:

4th

Previous Experience:

Two previous years in the UHRacing team, one as Aerodynamics Department Lead and one as an Aerodynamics Engineer

Goal for UH23:

For the coming season, I aim to design a complete a new aero package to optimise the aero balance for the new 4WD electric vehicle. Further to this, I aim to achieve 400N of downforce across the car at 30mph. Within this, I hope to reduce the weight of the total aero package compared to previous years, while also reducing the general cost of production by working closely with sponsors. As Deputy Team Leader, I aim to help lead and support all aspects of the team, helping to achieve a top 5 finish overall in this seasons competitions.
