Our Leadership

Thread 2 Lead

Queen’s University Belfast

Trevor graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a MEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. He then pursued a PhD in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering while working on a large European Framework Programme aerospace project called VIVACE. He is currently Deputy Head of School.

Trevor’s research contributes to automated Computer-Aided Design systems. He investigates novel geometry-based methods for design, with a particular focus on integrating Computer-Aided Design and Simulation systems. Recent work has included researching the concept of Simulation Intent, investigating new generative design and parameterisation strategies, automated approaches to mesh generation and the use of machine learning to provide understanding and to enable better processes. He has been involved in the biohaviour projects from the first one, In Search of Design Genes: Chaotic versus Controlled Mitosis, in 2015.
