This blog is written by Paul Chambers. I am currently a postgraduate research student in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling at the University of Southampton, with a background in aerodynamics.
My current research interests are in machine learning algorithms as a means for aircraft design layout optimisation. I'm also passionate about software engineering, and spend probably too much time doing/caring/thinking about best practices for applied scientific software development.
This blog is designed to keep an electronic record of the tips, tools and projects I have generated or acquired throughout my PhD. Content presented here is my own unless otherwise stated - suggested improvements are welcome.
Some further information about my work is provided below. Contact me for a full CV.
