Director of Strategy, CATIA Composites R&D
After graduating with a PhD in Engineering Mechanics from Cambridge University, John Klintworth worked on composite structures for the energy, marine, automotive and aerospace industries. Following experience of a wide variety of composites production techniques, he developed modelling and simulation technology to integrate the design, analysis and manufacture of composites structures and founded Simulayt Limited to develop and deliver this solution. Following the acquisition of Simulayt by Dassault Systemes in 2011, he remains focused on the goal of improving composite structures with particular focus on the simulation of composite manufacturing processes, integrated modelling of the composites life cycle, and holistic composites optimization.
