Lead Simulation and Control Engineer
After leaving university, James spent six years developing and using driving simulators at Ferrari F1 Team. He initially worked in Simulation Development, using multi-body modelling and optimization to provide driving simulator and lap simulation vehicle models, and later moved into Vehicle Dynamics and Race Performance Engineering, where he ran simulation studies in preparation for races and supported setup decisions from the factory.
Since then, James has worked in the automotive industry, building vehicle models and simulations for the Dyson Electric Vehicle project.
At Dynisma, he leads the development of simulations and control for all simulators, specialising in multi-body modelling, control theory and optimization. Simulations play a role in simulator development, from the design stage right through to controller development and testing.
