    Personal Bio

    Since 2004, I have been studying in the Exp. Physics Dept. at NUI Maynooth. Most recently while researching for my MSc I have been predominantly focusing on numerical optimisation techniques for the development of an accurate alignment procedure for a near-field scanning system. This work has given me experience in data modeling and non-linear fitting routines. My original background being in Physics with Astrophysics has given me the opportunity to work with large data sets and I have performed data reduction using software packages such as IRAF.

    Education

    National University of Ireland, Maynooth, 2011.

    Research MSc in Experimental Physics

    Thesis: The Optimisation of a Near-Field Scanning System (due for submission October 2011)

    Involving the construction and optimisation of a new scanning system used for the testing and verification of optical components for various ground and space based instruments.

    Skills Acquired:

    Ø  High level of experiences gained in C++, MATLAB, LabVIEW and Mathematica.

    Ø  Data analysis and modeling including implementation of linear and non-linear fitting methods for both real and complex data.

    Ø  Modeling of optical systems using both commercial and in-house developed software packages

    Ø  Large amount of electronics and interfacing experience.

    Ø  Presentation of work including seminars, poster presentations and report writing.
