    Personal Profile:

    I have completed two degrees at the University of Surrey and am looking to expand the scope of my career to new areas. I am a confident and outgoing person. I enjoy a challenge and feel comfortable in a range of working roles. I am used to working alone when required, however I find working in a team more productive and am happy in both situations. I am hard working and keen to learn in addition to being friendly, reliable and a good problem solver.

    I have a number of interests and hobbies. My primary interests are in science and technology, and this is the path I have chosen for my career. I have a telescope and enjoy making observations of the solar system and sharing the experience with friends who are less familiar with the subject. I am very interested in the history of science, particularly space science and have prepared a number of talks on more unusual subjects.

    Aside from this I have a healthy interest in current affairs, politics, and history. I enjoy reading both non-fiction and fiction literature in a wide range of fields and genres. I have a passion for travel and do so whenever I have the opportunity and the means.

    I speak some German and am currently learning Mandarin Chinese. I am interested in languages and aim to learn a number of different tongues in the years to come.
