Biography

Dr Bryant is an Associate Professor in Automotive Engineering at the University of Bradford with a research specialism in automotive brakes and braking. He graduated with a degree in Automotive Engineering from the University of Leeds followed by a PhD from the University of Huddersfield in the field of vehicle brake judder supported by Bentley Motors and an EPSRC CASE Award. A period at the University of Huddersfield saw him hold positions of Lecturer and Senior Lecturer before moving to the University of Bradford in 2012 where he is now Head of the Department of Mechanical & Energy Systems Engineering.Dr Bryant’s research interests centre on vehicle brakes and braking systems with a specific focus on noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), thermal effects, numerical modelling, and experimental investigations. Drawing on regular funding from automotive OEMs, the work has gained international recognition with the publication of conference papers and journal articles. Projects have directly impacted on vehicle design and production and have embedded an understanding of complex problems. Knowledge Transfer interests focus on the running of the renowned Braking of Road Vehicles short course for industry. Dr Bryant is a member of the Faculty’s Automotive Research Centre and directs the Braking Research Centre sub-group. Since 2018 Dr Bryant sits as Chair of the IMechE Automobile Division Yorkshire Centre.
