    - Two refereed papers (one as first author) and two conference proceedings are listed below

    - Attended 6 international conferences and 3 IPHAS consortium meetings, where I presented results of my research in form of posters and/or talks

    - I have been working in numerous outreach events between 2008-2012, which include open evenings at the UH Bayfordbury Observatory, school visits and adult group visits

    Teamwork

    - I have been PI of two projects at the INT telescope in La Palma (2009, 2010) and co-PI of one project at the CAHA 3.5m telescope (2011)

    - As part of my PhD training, I attended two research schools, where I worked with other students in order to test new techniques learned

    Problem-solving

    - Developed an independent approach to solve specific astrophysical problems. This included updating existing models and designing of new methods of analysis.

    - Experienced in dealing with large data-sets, in order to study, classify and organise them

    - Good confidence in finding IT solutions to a modelling problem and/or visual representation of data

    Knowledge-transfer

    - I supervised several undergraduate students, during individual assignments and collective lab experiences, between 2008-2012

    Computing

    - Very experienced in Python scripting: The principal modules I used for my PhD degree are matplotlib, numpy, scipy, pyfits, astLib. I used python to handle large data-sets, in form of arrays, and to read specific data-formats (fits files). I used it for analysing different data-types, as for instance photometric and spectroscopic data. I also used Python also as the main plotting tool. I also have some experience in multi-threaded scripting with python
    - I am comfortable in working under Linux / Mac OSX / Windows OS environments.
    - I know HTML scripting
    - Good experience with the MS Office suite
    - Well experienced in the use of LaTex (e.g. for writing scientific reports, papers etc.)
