Aerospace Engineer and Founder @FuroSystems
I have always been impressed and passionate about flying machines and the ultimate frontier that space represents. This led me to graduate from a Masters in Aerospace Engineering as one of the top students at a leading UK university. Throughout this degree I was offered the opportunity to understand and apply advanced engineering concepts to different design projects.
In my final year, I consequently designed a proof of concept nuclear battery or Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (refer to my courses to learn more about these) for nanosatellites which was judged by academics as one of the best projects of my department, won the Reaction Engines prize and presented at the 4th Interplanetary Cubesat Workshop. Similarly, I developed, with a team of colleagues, an unmanned rotorcraft able to fight fires, carry cargo and surveillance missions which eventually won a design competition for Agusta Westland.
I went on to found FuroSystems, a company which designs, manufactures and retails ultra light high performance electric vehicles. Our goal is to help accelerate society's transition to electric means of transportation through aesthetic, powerful and affordable machines. We are now present in over 30 countries and have sold 1000s of units.
I am very excited to be able to share my knowledge with curious individuals, who like me want to know more about the engineering behind the wonderful machines that populate our world.
