Paul Hambly

Background: I have a background in electrical and electronics engineering and throughout the 1990s I worked in a number of roles in the fire/security and consumer electronics industry. In 1999 I returned to education, gaining a BSC in computer science from the University of Hull in 2002. Following on from my degree I embarked on PGCE in ICT and in 2003 started a career in secondary school teaching. I decided to return to education in 2018 completing an MSC in Energy Engineering. My dissertation researched the use of real time weather information to improve the efficiency of space heating within commercial and domestic dwellings.

Research Interests: My research interests are the use of AI and machine learning in achieving engineering design and control solutions.

Why you applied for the Aura CDT: I really enjoyed the research aspect of my MSC and the Aura CDT program offered the chance to conduct original research which could contribute to the success of offshore wind turbine industry. Offshore wind energy has become a crucial component to the UK’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 and I am delighted to have the opportunity to play a part in this.

PhD Research:

My Phd project is ‘Advance condition monitoring solutions for offshore wind generators’ at University of Sheffield.
