I am a very hard working individual and have a great enthusiasm to learn and further my knowledge in both the aerospace and astronautics engineering field. I am able to learn quickly and have the ability to work on my own and as part of a team. I am a very organised and motivated individual and can adapt to any demanding environment.

Responsibilities included: Fitting and general metal work on vacuum chambers. Work was invariably time constrained and demanding in nature, improving my effectiveness and efficiency of work within a team.
I was involved in the Student parabolic flight campaign with the European Space Agency in July 2005 in Bordeaux, France. This involved testing a design for a solar kite unfurling in zero gravity once released by the launch vehicle.
My individual project for my degree was to design a mission to a near Earth asteroid to analyse the various characteristics of the asteroid. This involved the complete mission design including the orbit trajectory, propulsion subsystem, thermal subsystem, power subsystem, communications subsystem and the associated budgets.
My final year group project was designing a mission to place a rover on the Moon’s surface. This project was quite detailed and involved the design of all parts of the mission including launch selection, transfer vehicle design, rover design and all the subsystems required.
All of these projects went very well and had successful results.
