Automotive Engineer in both Electrical and light vehicle trades I've spent the last 12 years tutoring at the Wellington Institute of Technology. 11 years ago my interest in EVs was sparked when I was involved in an EV conversion of a Rav 4. Still in use today the vehicle is a high quality conversion and has been a test bed for different battery monitoring technologies. This project led to my involvement with EV and hybrid fault diagnosis which compliments my teaching practice. I'm keen to ensure the vehicle service and repair industry is prepared for the move to EV through education.
