I am the CEO, CTO and founder of Slingshot Simulations a startup from the University of Leeds Distributed Systems and Services research group in the School of Computing. In my role at Slingshot, I am supported by the Royal Academy of Engineering as one of their Enterprise Fellows.
My focus is on practical application of using distributed real-time systems for IoT, Cloud computing, and massive-scale simulations for Digital Twins targeted at applications in Autonomous Vehicles and Smart Cities. I am currently also a member of the UK National Digital Twin programme at the Centre for Digitally Built Britain (University of Cambridge), Co-Chair of the Terminology, Taxonomy and Technology working group in the OMG Digital Twin Consortium.
Before forming Slingshot Simulations I was a researcher at the University of Leeds and teaching fellow at Southwest Jiaotong University in China.
