After graduating in Motorsport Technology in 2011, Charlie held several operational roles in the motorsport industry including Production Controller and Design Coordinator for Formula 1 teams and supplier companies with composites. In 2017 he returned to study for a BSc Top-Up in Automotive engineering at the University of Brighton where he worked on the design and manufacture of a Formula Student Chassis with a focus on ergonomics and regulatory compliance. Following his graduation, Charlie joined the Formula E team Mahindra Racing as a Design Engineer, working on the design of the cooling system and inboard suspension components among other projects. Charlie has joined the AAPS CDT hoping to apply his experience in design and manufacturing while widening his knowledge and expertise to help improve efficiency and sustainability in vehicle design. Outside of University he enjoys surfing, playing the guitar and motorsport.
