Originally from Australia, Brett was an ARC research fellow at The University of Sydney where he developed a novel graphic recognition and data processing system for analysing element maps. Following this Brett moved to Edinburgh and The University of Edinburgh to pursue a post doctorate in the dynamics of friction on ice surfaces focusing on winter sports in collaboration with Scottish Institute of Sport, UK Sport and the British Olympic curling team.
Brett joined the Xi team in 2006 where, as a vibration consultant, he’s developed solutions across a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors including, renewable energy, medical, civil engineering, super-conductors, transport and residential properties. His experience using both conventional and novel isolation and damping techniques allows the design of the most cost-effective solution.
