Chris graduated from Technological University Dublin (formerly Dublin Institute of Technology) in 2011 with an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering. His studies included mechanics of materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, control systems engineering and mechanics of machines.
Having a passion for vehicle engineering, Chris emigrated from Ireland to the UK shortly after graduating to work in the powersports and automotive industries. There, he worked his way from being a graduate design engineer up to a design team leader. In industry, he became a specialist in chassis engineering, focussing primarily on motorcycle wheels, braking systems, frames, and suspension systems. Chris had a hand in design engineering for a wide range of vehicle applications from heavy machinery to dedicated race vehicles.
In 2018, Chris became a Chartered Engineer with the UK's Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
Chris decided to return to Ireland in 2022 and make a career change by joining Keltie as a Patent Assistant based primarily in the firm's Galway office. He works as part of the Engineering Team, dealing with a wide range of subject matter including automotive technologies, medical devices, renewable energy and marine technologies.
