Adam McClenaghan MEng
Adam is a PhD student in his first year with the Design and Manufacturing Futures Lab at the University of Bristol. His research is focusing on the cost benefit of Digital Twins for assemblies.
Adam was awarded a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering (MEng) from the University of Bristol. As part of his undergradute studies he investigated the affordances of using EEG based brain computer interfaces to augment CAD software. Research using EEG to investigate design neurocognition is something he is interested in, completing this work with other members of the lab alongside his PhD research.

The DMF lab are excited to be embarking on research in the new application area of Smart human-centred design. Work in this area seeks to couple physiological and neuroscientific measures with monitoring of designers in order to enable optimisation of the performance of individual designers and design teams. Engineering projects are complex, often time […]
In November the DMF lab hosted Dr Tripp Shealy – an associate Professor from Virginia Tech currently undertaking a visiting position at the University of Strathclyde. The visit gave us the opportunity to hear an invited talk by Tripp and also discuss potential collaboration opportunities, especially around the design cognition work that the DMF lab […]
In late November I travelled up to the University of Strathclyde to give a talk on the Physical Digital Affordance Index – a project I’m currently working on in collaboration with the Digital Catapult. In addition to giving the talk, the purpose of the visit was to connect up with other design researchers at the […]
Mixed Reality (MR) technologies have emerged as potential game-changers in the design landscape, offering a dynamic blend of physical and virtual elements. Designers are increasingly drawn to MR for its potential to elevate, enrich, and expedite prototyping endeavors. One intriguing aspect is MR’s ability to deceive our senses, bridging the gap between the virtual and […]
