Author Gregory Smith


Gregory’s career in tires began at Jaguar Land Rover, where he was the first at the company to build tire models. This led to him founding the Tire CAE and Modeling team which was responsible for tire testing, modeling and technical development. In 2016 Gregory obtained four patents and won the Tire Technology Young Scientist prize for his PhD work on GS2MF, an efficient tire testing procedure. Following this Gregory moved to America to work with Goodyear on virtual tire submissions, where he worked to develop a process to design tires using virtual modeling techniques.
