After graduating with a first class degree in Mechanical Engineering at Manchester Metropolitan University, Adam undertook a PhD research programme investigating the fatigue and durability performance of truck components using a combination of in-field testing and computer simulation. This PhD was part of the EPSRC ‘Total Technology’ framework and was conducted in collaboration with Leyland Trucks.

Following the completion of his PhD in 2004, Adam joined the Rail Technology Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University. During his time at the Rail Technology Unit, Adam built up a wide range of expertise and knowledge in the field of wheel-rail interface engineering, vehicle dynamics simulation and vehicle-track interaction. Adam is a Chartered Mechanical Engineering and a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

In his current role Adam has led a number of industry sponsored research and enterprise projects for various clients, such as the Rail Safety and Standards Board and Network Rail. These have included the development of new wheel profile designs for the GB rail network and detailed modelling techniques for the evaluation of wear and rolling contact fatigue damage.

Adam joined the University of Huddersfield in July 2012 where he is currently Head of Enterprise for the Institute of Railway Research. In this role Adam hopes to develop further relationships with clients and identify gaps in industrial enterprise for future development of the group.
