    Work Experience

    National Astronomical Observatories of Chinese Academy of Science (NAOC) Dec 2012 to Match 2013

    I am learning to use software to analyse data from sub-millimetre observations. The programs are both GILDAS programs. One is called CLASS (Continuum and Line Analysis Single-dish Software) I use this to analyse data and reduce it by taking averages of observations taking from the same offsets. Then plot the individual results and then map them across a chart. I also plot several Gaussian curves on the same plot to monitor the change. The other program uses the results taken from class to map them into a contour map. This is called GREG (Grenoble Graphic) which can show the velocity-integrated intensity regions of particular CO lines of star forming regions. I am also assisting in data reduction and researching codes with regards to star formation. I am currently finishing a paper on Submillimeter/millimeter observations of star forming region IRAS 05274+3345 Using data collected from observations using the KOSMA 3m telescope in Switzerland at two seperate observing frequencies, the region and its bipolar molecular outflows were investigated in the CO J=2-1 and CO J=3-2 lines. The data was anaylsed and reduced using GILDAS programs CLASS (Continuum and Line Analysis Single-Disk Software) and GREG (Grenoble Graphic) to map the individual spectra of the particular offset regions and observe the intensity and presence of the outflows. GREG was used to create integrated intensity maps of the core of the region against the outflows showing their location and intensity. P-V diagrams were constructed with the contours of the region to further illustrate the presence of the bipolar outflows. Parameters such as infrared luminosity and dust temperature of the core were calculated from the results along with the mass of the individual outflow regions which are compared between the two J line transitions to determine the nature of the region such as its identity as high-mass young stellar object. The presence of an H2O Maser was also detected in the region which was mapped on the region. Once the mass of the outflows were determined, the momentum, energy and mass loss rates could be determined.

    Hiscox London June 2011 to August 2011

    I was an underwriting intern working in the Technology Media and Telecommunications department. The internship mostly entailed underwriting cases on a day to day basis. I was also put in charge of finding new business for the different offices in the UK. I spent a large portion of time producing spreadsheets of potential PR and advertising companies with details of our history with them, current turnover and whether or not they were worth looking in to. I also created lists of conventions and meetings between technology and media companies which we could make an appearance at. I was also given the responsibility of travelling to our Glasgow office and representing Hiscox in a meeting with Aon about finding potential educational establishments that we could potentially provide a policy for. I spent several weeks researching potential schools in certain geographical and education areas and if they were worth approaching.

    Yorkshire University Air Squadron 2008-2010

    At university from 2008 to 2010, I was an officer cadet at the York University Air Squadron. I was constantly evaluating exercises and predicting the best way to complete them. I was able to organise many exercises that were linked to real life military situations and present these exercises as a package to superior officers. As a team leader, I had to convince my fellow team members that the task ahead was assessed in all areas including practicality, risk and cost effectiveness. Vehicles, personnel, weapons and machinery had to be acquired and mission objectives achieved all within a time limit. This involved coordinating a multidisciplinary environment to achieve a single and sometimes very complex goal. The principles of forward thinking and good practical planning had to be applied.. Risks and costs had to be assessed and the overall benefits of the exercise considered. These exercises were designed to test organisational skills and leadership of a team within a complex environment

    Computer skills

    MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access and Outlook. Lab programmes Maple, Labview, and Gildas

    Further experience

    I have studied Mandarin Chinese and Culture at BCLU in Beijing for three months from September 2012 to December 2012 and teaching English in Beijing since December 2012.

    Interests

    Music and drama. I play the violin, viola and guitar. Participated in musicals and plays at school, university and for local amateur dramatic societies Charity work I helped the cleanup operation at Cockermouth in the Lake District in 2009 post floods. I have a Private Pilots Licence (PPL) and a full UK driving licence. Sport: Hockey, Football, Windsurfing, Gym, Running and Ski-ing.
