Three things you didn't know about Jae:
- Jae was born and raised in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, a city claimed to have the best climate in the world
- He loves to surf, even though he is terrible at it, and hence usually goes on surfing trips during his holidays
- During university, he led a team of students to participate in Eurobot (an international robotics competition). The team managed to reach 3rd place at the UK nationals and consequently was one of three teams to represent the UK at the world finals held in Dresden, Germany. Unfortunately, the team's robot was destroyed on its way to Dresden
Jae has worked as a placement student at TWI (The Welding Institute) where he carried out numerical modelling of various welding procedures. He also worked, for a short time, as a mechanical design engineer at REAPsystems (an SME specialising in electric propulsion systems and battery technology).
