Mark Goudswaard PhD

Mark is a Research Associate on Proto-twinning.  As part of this project his interest lies in how digital capture of prototypes can be combined with design rationale and reasoning in order to improve the product development process.

His doctoral research centred on the democratisation of design for additive manufacture – investigating how the practice of design can be made more accessible to enable more people to reap the benefits afforded by additive manufacture.

He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Bristol, where he gained a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
