Year of Study:


Previous Experience:

Goal for UH23:

I aim to design and build a fully functioning and reliable HV tractive system for UH23, to help achieve a 100% finish record across all dynamic events. Most importantly, I aim to build a safe accumulator, working closely with the university to design and implement safe working solutions for future students.

Favourite Motorsport Memory:

Lewis’ first win of the 2018 season, in Baku. Knowing I had contributed to the win while on placement at Mercedes HPP, makes it a special memory for me.
