Matt Giess is a researcher within the IMRC at the University of Bath. He has submitted a doctoral thesis which describes research into methods of analysing manufacturing data to obtain information useful for the designer. This thesis is awaiting examination. He has research interests in Data Mining, information organisation and information retrieval in the engineering domain. He has previously carried out experimental research into fretting fatigue at the Structural Materials Centre at DERA Farnborough (now Qinetiq), and has worked as an electronic circuit board manufacturing engineer at Nortel Networks, Harlow, and as a financial assistant for Citibank in Sydney, Australia.
