NEMA is proud to announce that our Lead Research and Development Engineer has been elected to the UK Magnetics Society Committee.
Dr Leigh Stanger joined NEMA 3 years ago after completing his PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield and acts as NEMA’s thermal expert. He is currently leading our magnetic bearings project as well as conducting in depth analysis of our development motors, ranging from specification designation to design verification testing.
After graduating with a 1st class BSc and Masters in Physics at Leeds University, Leigh worked for 3 and a half years as a research scientist at the National Physical Laboratory in London before undertaking his PhD.
Having recognised Leigh's potential, he was proposed, seconded and then elected to the UK Magnetics Society Committee last week, where he will help steer the direction of the committee, as well as conducting knowledge transfer activities and collaborating with other organisations across the globe.
This position ensures NEMA remains at the forefront of technological innovation in leading electro-mechanical-actuation design and manufacture in the industry.
