Rosetta’s lander Philae will target Site J, an intriguing region on Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko that offers unique scientific potential, with hints of activity nearby, and minimum risk to the lander compared to the other candidate sites. Site J is on the ‘head’ of the comet, an irregular shaped world that is just over 4 km across at its widest point. The decision to select Site J as the primary site was unanimous. The backup, Site C, is located on the ‘bo...

While scanning the sky to measure the positions and movements of stars in our Galaxy, Gaia has discovered its first stellar explosion in another galaxy far, far away. This powerful event, now named Gaia14aaa, took place in a distant galaxy some 500 million light-years away, and was revealed via a sudden rise in the galaxy’s brightness between two Gaia observations separated by one month. Gaia, which began its scientific work on 25 July, repeatedly scans the entire sky, so that e...

    CV

     Nationality: British 

    Profile

    I am a Systems Engineer with over 10 years of experience in the space industry.  In that time I have worked on project phases from requirements definition, through detailed design to testing and delivery, working for extended periods at locations across Europe.  I have a great passion for space and take great pride in contributing to the success of the projects I work on.  I also take pride in applying a good engineering approach to my work.  I mix well and enjoy working in international teams. 

     

    Education

    University of Southampton - BSc. Physics with Space Science and Technology, 1999

     

    Experience

    Test Conductor, EADS Astrium, Galileo GCS IOV - March 2009 - Present

    As a member of the GCS AIV team, based at the DLR facility in Munich, I was responsible for managing two Verification Campaigns (Planning functions and Classified functions).  This involved managing small teams on-site in Munich to generate, dry run and execute test procedures verifying Ground Control Segment requirements, as well as supporting element integration.

    Systems Engineer, EADS Astrium, Galileo GCS IOV - January 2001 - March 2009

    As a member of the GCS IOV Segment Engineering Team from Phase B through to Phase C/D, my main responsibilities were on interface definition and security aspects, as well as more general support to the Segment design effort.  This period included secondments to the System design team in Rome (September - December 2002), responsible for secure interface definition, and to the GMS Segment Team in Toulouse (March 2005 - March 2007), responsible for GMS external interfaces definition.

    Systems Engineer, EADS Astrium, Skynet 5 - September 1999 - January 2001.

    As a member of the Skynet 5 System team, I supported link sizing, threat assessment and legacy interoperability studies.

     

    Skills

    As part of my training at Astrium, I participated in the Systems Engineering Qualification course.  This in-depth nine week course included modules on system engineering and project management theory, schedule and cost estimation aspects, subsystem technical details, and social and leadership skills.  The course also included as an integral part a project to perform a feasibility study for a low-cost lunar lander, including a preliminary design, cost, schedule, and other technical and programmatic details. 

    From my work in various system engineering positions, I am familiar with a variety of design tools and methods, including UML, XML, Satellite Tool Kit (STK) and DOORS.  I have worked on Linux-based systems and so am familiar with this OS, as well as the standard MS Office tools, including MS Project.

    I have good interpersonal, team working and team building skills, as demonstrated by my successful management of teams in my AIV Test Conductor role.  I have also built good relationships with customer and subcontractor representatives that I feel are an important part of the success of a project.
