Group Project: ‘Space Weather Diamond’ Hazardous Space Weather Warning System– Launcher Work Package
(Proposed by Astrium with key interest from Science and Technology Funding Council and NASA)
The purpose of this project is to undertake a detailed study of a system to provide early warning of hazardous space weather, such as large solar flares, so to give sufficient time to reduce the harmful effects on activities on Earth (e.g. air travel, electrical power grids etc.).
Working within an international team of fifteen my personal area of responsibility is such activities as vehicle selection, launch campaign planning, launch and orbital parameter definition and risk analysis, spacecraft compatibility with launcher, payload integration; all with regards to the larger project.
Individual thesis: ‘Canadian Maritime Arctic Surveillance System – CMASS’ A High Latitude Infrastructure Study for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF)
The purpose of the project is to determine the most effective method for RCAF of providing situational awareness of the Canadian arctic region, with special interest on the approaches to the Northwest Passage. The focus will be on the use of satellites, unmanned aircraft such as the Global Hawk and surface bases assets, or a combination there of, to determine what infrastructure is required, their issues and their effectiveness. The project will be done in conjunction with and the findings presented to representatives of RCAF

BEng (hons) Aerospace Technology
Main subjects include: Aeronautical engineering, Mechanical and electrical engineering, Avionic systems, Instrumentation and control, Control systems, Computer aided design and manufacture
Group Project: Team entrance to the University Heavy Lift Challenge
The purpose of the project was to design an aircraft to carry certain masses of payloads whilst still being able to perform set manoeuvres within a progressively difficult defined course.
Working as a group of six my area of focus was the wing design, both structural loading and aerodynamics, in collaboration with the team as to permit the required operation in a safe and effective manner.
Individual thesis: ‘Design and integration study of airships into a modern air transport market’
The purpose of this project was to design an airship suitable for a future air cargo transport market needs as an alternative to commercial fixed wing aircraft. This research was conducted with conjunction with what is now Hybrid Air Vehicles ltd and university staff. On completion research was submitted to the company.

Jan 2010 – June 2010: Université du Bordeaux, Laboratoire de L’Intégration du Matériau au Système, France
Research Engineer (three month industrial placement)
As part of the EU’s Leonardo da Vinci programme I worked in the Universities’ systems research department as part of an international team on various experimental projects for Airbus. My focus was on methods to improve maintainability of composite structures using microwave based methods for remote detection of internal degradation; for which I created multiple bi-lingual (French/English) reports.
Besides offering useful work experience the other focus of the Leonardo da Vinci programme was for me to receive tuition in French and to live with a French family for six months; the reason for this was to gain a greater confidence living day to day in a different language.
Aug 2006 – Oct 2011: EF Educational Tours, Oxford Street, London, United Kingdom
I had to manage and tour with multiple groups of international tourists; with an average group size of 42 ranging in age from 6 to 70 years old. I had to handle the logistic and technical part of every tour throughout working closely with officials such as embassies, suppliers and other organisations to ensure the guests enjoyment, comfort, health and safety and security.
Being the only representative of the company present on most occasions professional and polite interaction with each guest was essential. Effective problem solving abilities, critical thinking, organisation and conflict management were also priority skills.
Other duties included effective communication through presentations, answering questions and giving clear instructions where necessary as well as effectively managing budgets for the tour, routine contact with departments based in the London, Paris and Swiss offices and all administration involved.
