Tome Gouveia

Consultant (Modelling and Simulation Engineer)

Tome is currently completing his PhD in Scientific Computing at the University of Cambridge, where he specialises in solid mechanics and damage. His work has been focussed on the modelling of damage development and the numerical techniques for simulating fracture. He also holds a Masters in Advanced Studies (Physics) from the University of Cambridge, and an undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Coimbra (Portugal).


Dr. Maria Artiles

Consultant (Modelling and Simulation Engineer)

Maria is currently completing her PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Kingston University. She has experience with Finite Element Analysis, Image Based Modelling and Optimisation Techniques. Her research focuses on developing bone augmentation strategies for the prevention of osteoporotic fractures. She holds an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and an MSc in Mechatronic Systems from Kingston University.


Dr. Andrew Fowler

Consultant (Research Software Engineer)

Andrew studied undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in Physics and scientific computing at the University of Warwick and the University of Cambridge, respectively. His interests focus on applying established methods from the machine learning community to costly scientific calculations. His PhD work involved writing snippets of high performance code, implementing powerful inference frameworks using third party graphical model libraries such as TENSORFLOW and manipulating large scientific codes. His interests also extend to probabilistic modelling and methods to approximate the posterior distribution -- a probabilistic interpretation of hidden latent variables which leads to knowledge of ``uncertainty’’ via moments of the posterior predictive distribution.


Dr. Ryo Koblitz

Consultant (Research Software Engineer)

Ryo completed his PhD in Computational Physics at the University of Cambridge. He also holds undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering, and Scientific Computing, from University College London and the University of Cambridge. He has worked on problems stemming from the aircraft, oil and gas, and telecommunications industries, utilizing computational fluid dynamics and reinforcement learning techniques. His work is predominantly computational, writing high performance code to be run on distributed cluster computers.


Dr. Carlos Les

Consultant (Research Software Engineer)

Carlos studied Aeronautical Engineering at Loughborough University and has a masters degree in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics from the University of Cambridge. He completed his PhD in Combustion Aerothermodynamics at the Loughborough University’s Rolls-Royce UTC. His industrial R&D experience includes time at Rolls-Royce’s civil aerospace division in Derby. He has developed state-of-the-art computer vision techniques in combination with wind tunnel rig testing and mathematical modelling to solve convective cooling and thermoacoustic problems of multiphase flows. His interests include algorithms and software development for data acquisition, image-based analysis, statistical and machine learning modelling, optimisation and uncertainty quantification.


Scott Edmond

Consultant (Modelling and Simulation Engineer)

Scott holds an integrated Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Glasgow. His Masters thesis, completed at Rolls-Royce, evaluated meshing techniques for gas turbine computational aerodynamics problems. Scott returned to Rolls-Royce after graduating where he gained a breadth of applied simulation and modelling experience, most recently in computational aerodynamics.

About our Work
Some of our Clients
Investigation of the capacitive, inductive, and thermal properties of a standard three-core lead-sheathed cross-linked polyethylene, high-voltage alternating current (XLPE HVAC) submarine cable, conducted by COMSOL using COMSOL Multiphysics tools. Check out our own Case Study on high voltage cables for EDES.

Double Precision is an independent consultancy that specialises in the provision of engineering simulation services to industry. Our expertise spans materials science, engineering, physics, maths, scientific computing, data science, machine learning, finite element analysis, discrete element modelling, computational fluid dynamics, multiphysics simulation, HPC, and image-based analysis. 

When clients engage with DPC, we work closely with their management teams and technical experts to understand their key technical needs. With backgrounds in academia, our approach to project work is highly rigorous and highly collaborative.


Our primary simulation tool is COMSOL Multiphysics, and we are one of only 5 UK companies to be COMSOL certified, but our associates also have experience with ABAQUS, ANSYS, ROCKY DEM, Simpleware ScanIP, and a number of open source software codes. We can also develop customised tools using Java, Python and C++.
