Jenna Gaff

Design Engineer

 

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in July 2011 with a MEng in electrical and mechanical engineering. Since then I have worked on the project full time.  I did my masters industrial placement with the team in the first half of 2010 and continued my work on the project in my final year having selected an area of the car to investigate for my thesis.

I am originally from Edinburgh but I now live in Bristol to work on the team. I have always had a passion for F1 and all things aerospace related therefore I could not have asked for a better graduate job! Anyway enough talk about me let’s do this......Twitter: @jengaff_ssc
