Dr Andrew Wileman started his career as an apprentice in electronics with the UK Ministry of Defense at 35 Base Workshops REME, Old Dalby. After working in the defense industry for a number of years, mainly in the fields of Radar and Telecommunications, he went on to study for the degrees of BEng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering at the University of Nottingham. Subsequently followed by the MSc degree in Digital Communication Systems from Loughborough University where he was an EPSRC sponsored student.

As well working with other engineering companies within the UK, he has lectured in Electronics/Communication Engineering in Further and Higher Education Institutions for a number of years.

In 2012, he joined the Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) Centre at Cranfield University as PhD researcher in Prognostics for Electronics/Defense Systems, sponsored by Thales (UK) and Meggitt. After completing his PhD, he is currently working as a Research Fellow in Power Electronics Reliability within the Centre.

Andrew is a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (MIET) and holds a PGCE teaching qualification.

Current activities

Current interests are within the development of IVHM solutions for power electronics systems in relation to More-Electric Aircraft (MEA), prognostic algorithms and the application of Digital Twins for improving diagnostics and maintenance in aircraft systems.
