Group Design Project- BroadBand for the Mediterranean Region (BB-MED) Satellite
The BB-MED mission’s aim was to design a communication satellite which extended broadband access to Mediterranean countries and regions where access is poor or non-existent. This communication services addressed the needs identified in ESA’s AO-6534-AD1 project. As a team member was assigned to define the requirements and to design the mechanisms subsystem which provides and maintains the operations desired for the spacecraft. Have conducted trade-offs analysis of numerous mechanisms concepts acquired, designed, modelled, performed stress analysis and studied the mechanism performance with MSC ADAMS, PATRAN, NASTRAN.
Individual Research Project- Satellite Systems Engineering Design Tool (SSEDT)
Aim of the project was to develop a software tool that provides a convenient means to perform Phase-A design study of a communication satellite. The purpose of the tool was to minimise the effort time involved during the development phase of the satellite by enabling the user to create a more valid concept through rapid computation of mass, power, thermal and cost estimations and ultimately generate the concept of the satellite. The software development included an input/output GUI interconnected to MS EXCEL worksheets for performing calculations, and a database for storing data or results. Ultimately the SSEDT was adopted and designed with MATALB programming environment.
Sep 2006 - Jun 2010 BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering and Astronautics, Kingston University, UK
Modules-Engineering Mathematics, Aerospace Stress Analysis, Structures and Dynamics, Aerodynamics and Propulsion, Electronics and Control, Aerospace Engineering Design and Composite Materials, Space Vehicle Design, Engineering Computing, Business Applications in Engineering and Project Management.
Group Design Project- Single Staged Rocket Design
The project’s aim was to design, build and launch a level one rocket, capable of accurately achieving a designated altitude and time of flight. In addition have led the primary payload team and designed the payload integrated as part of the rocket for data-logging. Activities included, designing the payload which consisted of three sensors and a microprocessor programmed to capture various parameters during the rocket’s flight.
Individual Research Project- Nanorover Mechanical and Mobility System Design
The main area of interest in this project was the design of the mechanical and mobility systems for an autonomous Nanorover unit with several functionalities and capabilities aimed at reducing system mass and complexity for future planetary exploration applications. Have designed, modelled and simulated the nanorover mobility performance using The Bekker’s Theory, and SOLIDWORKS Motion Study.

Nov 2011 - ALTEN Technology Consultant - Airbus, Bremen, Germany
Stress Design Engineer and MBS- Main responsibilities included the developed of a simplified FEM Stick/Beam model of the A350XWB wing-box structure and high-lift system which is used for multidisciplinary design optimization and multibody dynamics. Have studied from start to finish as well as conducted static and dynamic analysis on the wing-box structure for A350XWB with MSC ADAMS, PATRAN, NASTRAN and MATLAB. Furthermore have generated results and optimised the structure to meet the project requirements. The wing-box structure Stick/Beam model developed is used for structural analysis and design studies of high-lift systems for future Airbus aircraft.
Aug 2008 - Jul 2009 GE Aviation - Aircraft Engine Services Ltd, Cardiff, UK
Repair Operations Engineer- As a team member, was assigned to provide support for the repair processes and operations required to increase the serviceability of the aircraft engine components. Diagnosing and setting up the rework shop routes for components going through the service process. Analysed the repair process, identified applicable operations, arranged and planned the overall process structure to ensure effective production. Filled and produced the repair documents for components required to be serviced.
CAD Modelling, Designing and Reverse Engineering– Was responsible for design and have produced technical drawings of the tools required for the workshop operators / technicians. Consulting and interacting with the operators, gather technical information, design tooling, produce CAD models, test and prove equipment’s design feasibility and finally prepare the tools for manufacturing. Also, I have produced engineering drawings for certain tools which required further redevelopment through the reverse engineering process utilising 3D scan techniques.
Six Sigma For Thermal Spray Process- Conducted analysis for the thermal spray process to identify the influencing factors and implement process improvements to maintain consistency. Have carried out independent research from start to finish, for the thermal spray process. Gathered information for a variety of possible influencing factors, inspected the current process, prepared and structured the design of the experiment (DOE) by applying six-sigma quality methods. Produced statistical analysis results with MINITAB of the influencing factors, eliminated the factors, new strategies developed and implemented in the thermal spray process.
CAD Modelling- Advance level; gained experience through projects at university and in industry with AutoCAD, SOLIDWORKS, and CATIA V5 generating 3D models and producing engineering drawings for design documentation and manufacturing. In addition have utilised CATIA V5 and SOLIDWORKS to model spacecraft mechanisms and various aircraft systems e.g. A350XWB high-lift system.
FEM - Advance level; have acquired the key theoretical concepts underlying the Finite Elements Method required for conducting structural, thermal, and fluid analyses. Able to apply aerospace standard computational toolssuch as MSC ADAMS, PATRAN, NASTRAN, FATIGUE, ESATAN and CFD to correlate, simulate its performance and produce results for validating models. Have performed a range of aerospace static, dynamic, fatigue, and optimisation analysis of structures to ensure the model integrity.
Programming - Intermediate level;able to design and analyse multivariable aerospace control systems with MATLAB. Gained experience with VISUAL BASIC and MATLAB GUIDE, building and programming applications software with GUI to assist systems engineers perform conceptual design analysis of a communication satellite. Have gained excellent experience from past projects with VISUAL BASIC programming and macros.
Space Mission Analysis / STK -Intermediate level; understanding of the advanced theory of orbital mechanics helped in the adequate and extensive use of SATELLITE TOOL KIT to simulate space mission concepts, design, analyse and optimise space systems.
MS OFFICE, WINDOWS XP/7, UNIX-Advance level; excellent presentation, analytical and writing skills, and can produce concise informative or technical presentations and reports.
STEM - A government funded organisation which is aimed at motivating young people in the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through inspiring role models.
