Grace Copplestone


I am an engineer from Bristol, UK. I've had opportunities to travel and work around the world including Hong Kong, Liberia, the USA and now the Netherlands.

I completed a Bachelors and Masters degree in Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cambridge, UK where I researched sustainable supply networks. I have experience as a product manager at Hanson Robotics in Hong Kong, research scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center in California, USA and hands-on rapid prototyping and software engineer at the Center of Bits and Atoms at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. My work at MIT is documented here, my thesis work is documented here. I moved to the Netherlands in 2018 where I've spent 2 years at PHYSEE Technologies in Delft. I am currently working at Roetz Bikes as technical project manager of a new, circular e-bike. Ik spreek ook Nederlands.

I have enjoyed using a range of fabrication techniques including CNC milling, water jet cutting, laser cutting and 3D printing. I have combined this with developing software skills using Python, Javascript, Matlab, C++, HTML, CSS for a range of projects including feedback control, optimisation and web design.

This website is to keep track of things I've been making along the way.
