Research Projects

Dr Orr has a funded research portfolio of £9.13M (£1.96M as PI) as of April 2019. He has built a team around his vision for the design optimisation and lightweighting of existing and future infrastructure by learning from real performance. The majority of my funding is from the EPSRC.
