Team - Alexei Winter
AMRC, University of Sheffield
Technical lead, IMG Electrification Team, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre
Alexei Winter holds an MEng in aerospace engineering and an EngD in systems from the University of Bristol. His doctoral studies centred on the optimisation of a renewable energy device for harnessing power from tidal flows.
He was granted patents for his control strategy and blade design. After a diversion which involved studying classical vocal technique at the Royal Welsh conservatoire, working as a concert soloist and teaching children maths and science, he joined the AMRC in 2018. Initially, he worked within the aerostructures and landing gear team, focusing particularly on the machining of thin-walled aluminium components.
Alexei Winter is currently a technical lead within the electric machines team within the Integrated Manufacturing Group. His current work centres around automation of high-value, low-volume electrical machines.
