Born in Chelmsford and an Old Chelmsfordian, Adam is a Senior Hardware Engineer at Leonardo in Basildon, and a Chartered Engineer. He joined Leonardo in 2011 as a graduate, having completed summer placements there whilst studying Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
Adam specialises in model-based design: he develops and simulates systems and algorithms using mathematical models, and from these generates auto-coded firmware and software designs. He is currently working on an Anglo-French precision-guided weapon programme, and previously worked on high-performance thermal imaging systems.
Alongside his day job, Adam does a lot of education outreach work, and mentoring, and can be found at many STEM events organised or attended by CSES.
