Who’s taking part in the Motor Zone?

Let’s meet the engineers and schools taking part…

The Engineers

Sarah Hunt | Rolls-Royce PLC

I design parts for aeroplane engines and model them to calculate how long they will last in an engine – they are made from really special materials called ‘single crystals’.

Masha Folk | Cambridge University

I try to make jet engines eat less fuel by making the turbine inside work better.

Mark Catherall | Canopy Simulations

I simulate Formula 1 cars so that we can predict what the best design and setup will be for each race.

Leon Wechie | Leeds University

Finding out whether chemical oils and a material surface like one another, and exploring why and just how intimate their relationship is.

Dominique Anderson | Science Technology Facilities Council

Making motors move with software.

Andrei Ilie | Jaguar Land Rover

I make sure that cars can be put together from lots of tiny parts and write the instructions needed to do that; its kind of like putting Lego together.
