We are thrilled that Dr Megan Doble has joined the Centre for Future Clean Mobility CFCM as the new IPDO.
Megan will be supporting the final stages of the Marine Business Technology Centre which is an ERDF funded programme supported by Exeter University, Plymouth University, Marine Biological Institute and Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Megan will be based at Exeter Science Park in the Engineering Research Centre which is home to CFCM.
Megan obtained her PhD from the University of St Andrews looking at lignin degradation for production of value-added chemicals. She is PRINCE2 qualified and looking to build a career in project management.
We are also delighted to introduce Jack Shanahan, who joins the team at CFCM as a Business Research Associate. Jack completed his Undergraduate Degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Exeter, where he conducted an extended study on the effects of varied levels of graphene reinforcement to the properties of copper.
Although based at the Engineering Research Centre, a series of short duration projects will see Jack visiting both current and prospective future partners within Devon. He will be providing a technical insight into growing and improving their businesses within the marine sector as part of our ERDF funded programme with the Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC).
