Robert Cripps is a leading expert in geometric modelling, CADCAM and computational modelling, with over 20 years' industrial and academic experience in this field. He has been involved in several highly rated EPSRC and DTI collaborative research projects with a range of manufacturing partners including BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar.
Dr Cripps heads the Geometric Modelling Group, which has a well-established and strong research association with Delcam. The Group undertakes fundamental research in computer-aided engineering (CAE) and aims to provide robust solutions to industrial problems, specialising in the design and manufacture of components with sculptured free-form surfaces. Over the last five years, the group has broadened its profile beyond that of surface modelling and geometric computing to include computer numerical control (CNC) machining.
