Personal profile


After graduating from Loughborough University in 2006 with a first class honours masters degree in mechanical engineering, David joined the graduate training scheme at Bombardier Transportation where he was based in the Bogies Division. After completing the graduate scheme he took the role of Dynamics and Suspension engineer, specialising in railway vehicle dynamics and suspension design.

In 2010 David joined the Rail Technology Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University which specialised in railway vehicle dynamic modelling and wheel rail interaction where he worked on a number of research and consultancy projects.

In 2012, the Rail Technology Unit staff transferred to the University of Huddersfield to form a new group specialising railway research.
