Joshua graduated with a masters degree in automotive engineering from the University of Brighton. Most recently tackling the feasibility of a niche battery electric vehicle to be used by the local lifeguard at Brighton beach, he specialised in the drive cycle analysis and design of lightweight electric drivetrains. Previous to this, Josh was an avid member of the University of Brighton IMechE Formula Student team as a chassis kinematics engineer developing the front suspension system and his passion for vehicle design. At the AAPS he hopes to further explore the future of lightweight electric vehicle design, most prominently human-electric hybrid concepts, and the more comprehensive challenges this brings to the automotive sector.
