Nick joined the department in 2003 to undertake an MSc in Naval Architecture, following a MEng in Mechanical Engineering at Durham. He then spent two years working as a desk officer for the Royal Navy’s technical safety assurance body for submarines, before returning to the department to complete his PhD. He is a member of the Royal Corps of Naval Constructors, with experience of working on both surface ships and submarines.
Nick’s main areas of research are survivability and operational modelling of surface warships, with a particular interest in cost-effective means of improving the resistance of ships to explosions. Other areas of interest include unconventional ship and submarine design, and the application of virtual reality to naval architecture.
