Will graduated from the University of Leicester in 2007 with a BEng in Mechanical Engineering. He went onto work in the electrical connections industry, before returning to academia where he graduated from Swansea University in 2010 with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering and again in 2015 with an EngD in computational modelling and experimentation of industrial heat transfer problems. During this time he also worked as a researcher for the project Advanced Sustainable Manufacturing Technologies. In 2015 Will joined the management team for the newly formed Doctoral training centre The Materials and Manufacturing Academy at Swansea University.
He has wide ranging interests in energy efficient, sustainable technologies and design, and has spent his entire academic career working with industrial problems. His main expertise is in computational modelling and experimentation of heat transfer and fluid flow industrial problems. In addition, he has a wealth of experience in additive layer manufacturing. He relishes the challenge of solving problems related to design and manufacturing.
