I am an engineer specialising in the assessment of the effectiveness of a wide variety of vehicle safety systems and characteristics and the development of policies, tests, rating schemes, national and international regulations intended to produce safer road vehicles.

This work has required the development of skills in collision reconstruction for individual cases, collision data analysis across a broad population, analysis of vehicle motion, vehicle testing on the test track or in the laboratory, interaction with road user behaviour, structural interaction and energy absorption and human tolerance to injury.

I am a Bosch-certified analyst of Event Data Recorders and am currently working towards the Cardiff University Bond Solon Accreditation as an expert witness. I am able to provide expert advice and evidence across a broad range of issues involved in road traffic accidents (RTA) and the following are examples of particular

Specialities:

Collisions where questions surround the operation of advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) such ABS, Automated Emergency Braking, lane keeping systems and 'autopilot' systems.
Collisions involving commercial vehicles (trucks and buses).
Special purpose vehicles (e.g. agricultural vehicles, armoured vehicles, quad bikes).
Identifying causes of loss of control or rollover.
Use of protective devices and injury (e.g. seat belts/helmets).
