About the Speakers

Mr Clive Ford is the Manager of the Advanced Analysis Consultancy group in Singapore, which is part of the international Professional Services company WorleyParsons. The Advanced Analysis group provides solutions using numerical modelling for simulation and also represents Abaqus, from SIMULIA (the Dassault Systèmes brand for Realistic Simulation solutions), one of the world's leading finite element analysis software packages.

Clive joined WorleyParsons in 2002 and been actively involved in supporting simulation in diverse industries; including biomedical, electronics, aerospace and offshore. Prior to joining WorleyParsons, Clive worked in a variety of engineering roles at Corus Group in the UK. This included plant condition monitoring, commissioning and latterly the development of a virtual rolling mill based around Abaqus, to facilitate the development of new steel products.

Clive holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sheffield and a Masters in IT from the University of Nottingham. He is a member of the local branch committee for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in Singapore and is active in promoting engineering simulation as an exciting career as well as its benefits to industry.  

Mr Sebastian Lee  is currently the lead Application Engineer at SeaCAD Technologies Pte Ltd responsible for FEA and CFD simulation.  He was previously with OYL R&D Centre involved in HVAC system design and product validation.  Sebastian graduated from USM Malaysia with a Bachelor (Hons) Degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He is a fully certified trained Solidworks Expert, Professional and FEA Program Specialist.  

Mr Nicolas Vass has a Civil Engineering diploma from the Singapore Polytechnic, a first degree from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and an MBA from the University of Leicester.  During his long career Mr. Vass has worked in civil and structural engineering as well as in the design coordination of Ph1A of the Singapore mass rapid transit system and has been developing business in the fields of computer aided-engineering in defense, aerospace, ordnance, research institutes and academia, manufacturing and offshore industries in Singapore and the region. In recent years his business activities have also extended to geotechnical engineering.  In the late 1990s he founded a computer aided engineering software company and in 2001 was subsequently acquired by MSC Software Inc. He is presently active in the distribution of analytics and simulation modelling solutions and services with SimLab.

Dr Lee Yong Jiun is currently the application consultant for CAD-IT Consultants and part of a technical team that consists of more than 4 other PhDs consultants that support customers in various discipline domains. Graduated in NUS with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, his research focus is on thermal management in electronics, primarily using ANSYS solutions. He joined Institute of Microelectronics in 2011 and served as project leader for an A*STAR-MINDEF funded project to design, fabricate and characterize a package level thermal management solution for monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC), which includes managing project progress, prototype (thermal test chip and cooling solution) design, fabrication and characterization. He was also involved in the thermal simulation and characterization of electronic packages (2.5D silicon interposer, 3DIC, electronics hotspot, power electronics) for various industrial and academic projects using ANSYS multiphysics simulation solutions. Prior to joining IME, Dr. Lee also worked for INTEL Technology as Assembly Technology Development Engineer, where his primary responsibility of the job was to develop a robust flip chip assembly process for the high volume manufacturing (HVM) of Intel next generation chipsets.

Mr Eric Lemaire, Asia-Pacific Manager of SPRING Technologies.  Eric graduated in 2006 from Oxford Brookes University in International Business and Economics. He joined SPRING Technologies Beijing Rep. Office in 2008 as a sales specialist for NCSIMUL support in Greater China.  He took over in 2011 the position of Asia-Pacific Manager for NCSIMUL Sales and successfully closed several major accounts in China (Alstom, Sidel, Messier-Dowty), Korea (Hyundai Heavy Industry), Japan and Malaysia (CTRM).  Dedicated to full customer support and satisfaction, he is leading his team of technical engineers through Europe to support its customers through Asia.

Mr David Goh, Senior Consultant of Hitachi Sunway Information Systems (Singapore) Pte Ltd has 14 years of working experience in the simulation of mechanical structures and systems.  Prior to joining Sunway, he was with the Oil and Gas Industry.  He was involved in structural and fatigue analyses of ships and offshore platforms.  His activities also include conversions and repair of FSO ship, tanker and oil rigs.  In  addition, David has served 8 years in the Automotive Defense Industry. He was involved in major government projects relating to structural and vibration analyses of military fighting vehicles.

David Goh received his undergraduate engineering degree from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.  He is currently a CAE consultant for the ASEAN region.
