Sam Dale is a Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, focusing primarily on Advanced Materials. Before joining IDTechEx, Sam graduated from Imperial College London with an MEng in Chemical Engineering, having undertaken research in such diverse areas as machine learning and data science, medical imaging and computational fluid dynamics. He is based in Whitstable, UK.
Sam was awarded a MEng (Master of Engineering) degree in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London. Through his studies he gained wide-ranging engineering and technical expertise, in addition to strong analytical skills. During his degree he carried out research, in conjunction with the Turing Institute, concentrating on development of digital twins of decontaminant sprays using computational fluid dynamics and machine learning. In addition to this he worked on development and commercial assessment of a novel low-carbon silicon production process and in a carbon capture pilot plant.
Academic research placements outside of Sam's degree studies included work to improve methods of processing phase-contrast MRI images, targeting improved outcomes for patients with heart disease, and data science-based development of models of multiphase fluid flow from a large industrial dataset.
At IDTechEx, Sam is currently focussing on Advanced Materials with a specific emphasis on the electronics industry, developing expertise in manufacturing methods, product feasibilities and the current marketplace.
