    Personal profile

    General

    Jean-Baptiste R. G. Souppez is the Senior Teaching Fellow in Mechanical Engineering and Design, and the Learning Enhancer for Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Design, at Aston University, as well as a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and a Research Inspired Teaching Excellence (RITE) mentor. He is also the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers (SNAME) Journal of Sailing Technology, the world's leading peer-reviewed journal for sailing research, and the UK Principal Expert in Small Craft Structures, in charge of representing the interests of the British Marine Industry in the development of international structural regulations (ISO 12215) thanks to his extensive knowledge of composites and structural design and analysis. Recognised as an international leader in yacht design, he oversees all small craft regulatory developments on behalf of the Institute of Marine Science, Engineering and Technology (IMarEST) in his capacity of liaison on the UK Small Craft Committee. His research in fluid dynamics features a wide range of experimental methods, supporting his cutting-edge expertise in hydrofoiling technology and award-winning work in the aerodynamics of downwind racing yacht sails. Moreover, he contributes to the highly international Erasmus Mundus Master in Advanced Design in Ship and Offshore Structures (EMship+) as a Visiting Professor and Research Supervisor at the University of Liege, while promoting professional development as an Associate Tutor for the MLA College, part of the University of Plymouth, supervising post-graduate researchers and enabling established professionals to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status through the IMarEST.
