Dr Farman is currently a Research Associate at the Whittle Laboratory. She was an undergraduate of the University of Durham Engineering Department, where she specialised in Electronic Engineering. She has worked in industry for ten years applying her knowledge of instrumentation and control to a range of products including gas turbines, earth moving equipment and wave energy turbines. Her work has included mosts of steps of the design cycle from initial concept design through to commissioning and testing. She obtained Chartered status in 2010. While continuing her work in industry she undertook a PhD at the University of Cranfield. Her research focused on the development of control strategies specifically for turbines on oscillating water columns. She is now applying her knowledge to the development of a tidal steam turbine load shedding device in collaboration with GE.
