Biography

Wilson graduated from the University of Auckland in 2017 and obtained a Mechatronics Engineering and Commerce degree (Accounting and Finance). While he studied, he worked with companies that developed innovative commercial devices and home appliances.  

In late 2017, he joined the Design and Development Research Group led by Dr David Wynn. His current research focuses on changes in platform architecture over successive generations of product variants in a product family. As part of his research, he aims to develop a model which will allow companies to evaluate these platform changes from multiple design perspectives.
