Background

Steve has worked in Engineering since 1989. He started as an apprentice in Bombardier Shorts in 1989 and was transferred into the Nacelles Design Department where he worked primarily on the BR710 Apron and Nacelle and a range of RB211 projects (mainly the RB211 535 E4). He then moved to the US to work for Boeing on the 747-500/600 and later Rolls-Royce on the Trent 800.

In 1998, he started at WilliamsF1 designing carbon fibre and metallic components such as wings, ducts, chassis structures, radiators etc. for eight seasons. His primary focus was the hardware in the sidepod such as the engine and gearbox cooling systems, electrical installation, bodywork etc.

Steve has been working in the Central Laser Facility since 2007, where he is responsible for all the mechanical hardware used for experiments/projects and leading the teams to deliver the mechanical hardware.
