In 2000, Dr. Dewhurst developed the concept of a new Rapid Application Development software product, later to become EASA. He recruited the EASA team, closed the first sales of the newly released EASA product, and obtained a US Patent covering the EASA concept.
In 2008, Dr. Dewhurst oversaw a management buy-out of EASA, which continues to grow, and to serve customers such as Procter & Gamble, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard, Xerox, Zurich Financial, and Canon. Dr. Dewhurst obtained a First Class degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Oxford in 1988, with an internship at NASA’s Lewis (now Glenn) Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
Dr. Dewhurst authored six papers which were accepted at various international conferences, as well as obtaining his Doctorate from Oxford. His doctoral thesis, entitled “The Application of Three Dimensional Laser Doppler Anemometry”, covered subjects such as fluid mechanics, turbo-machinery, heat and mass transfer, computational fluid dynamics and data visualization, and was relevant to industrial applications such as aircraft engines and nuclear reactors. He also held lectureships in Mathematics, Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Oxford.
