Mr Adam Wade


I went to work for IBM briefly as an analyst after I graduated from my degree in Aerospace Engineering. In 2013 I joined Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd as a mechanisms engineer. Whilst there I was involved in all aspects of the reaction wheel product and became the reaction wheel product owner in 2016. I joined the Institute of Functional Surfaces on the iT-CDT PhD programme in 2018 and I am presently doing research in numerical methods which can be used to explore tribological contacts.
