Autumn 2008 – Present:University of Kent – Physics Outreach Team
Promote physics as a subject and generate interest from secondary school pupils with ‘Cool Physics’ demonstrations. Guide tours of the physics department and present informatory talks to prospective students attending UCAS open days. Teach basic astronomy and rocketry to children aged 11-18 at the annual Kent Space School.
Autumn 2009: University of Kent – PH301 Demonstrator
Assisted stage 1 students with coursework from the PH301 physics module, which requires a deep understanding of the assessed problems and the ability to convey the fundamental physics without revealing the solution.
Summer 2009: University of Hertfordshire – Summer Placement
Completed an 8 week project to collect ancillary data for galactic objects in the Herschel-ATLAS fields and performed cosmological calculations to study the evolutionary trends of high redshift galaxies. Practiced with various computational methods and independently learnt the astronomical rudiments.
Summer 2007 & 2008: DHL London Colney – Data Entry for European Returns
Managed emails and independently maintained the returns department for 3 weeks.
2004 – 2006: Waitrose St. Albans – Dry Goods Shop Floor Assistant
Skilled in multiple areas of the store with responsibilities including training new staff and assisting to run the section.
Communication: Effective skills developed through:
Learned to work as a valuable team member throughout my employment to complete tasks precisely and efficiently. Applied leadership skills as Space Soc. president by delegating tasks to the committee, liaising with members and overseeing all events.
