    Personal profile, Skills and achievements

    ·         In July 2012 I graduated from the University of Kent, Canterbury with a 2:1 MPhys Degree with honours in Physics with Astrophysics.

    o   During the course of my degree I have acquired a variety of highly beneficial skills including problem solving and team work skills. These were acquired through regular coursework assignments, group lab projects and solo research projects. These included practical experimentation, data gathering, computer based simulation and data analysis.

    o   Two of the larger projects have been:

    §  The investigation of the atomic structure of a glass through the generation and analysis of a computer based model

    §  The spectroscopic analysis of real world asteroid observations.

    The primary objective of each of these projects was to produce high quality research and gain experience in the presentation of that research to a level suitable for general publication.

    o   As part of my degree I have had some experience with programming in the form of Matlab and FORTRAN as well as extensive experience with MS office.

    ·         In spring 2012 I was awarded the KSCV Gold award for volunteering with a total of 125 hours logged over the course of a year. This was done through working with two main groups these being.

    o   The University of Kent fencing club, where I held the voluntary committee position of Armourer.

    o   The Institute of Physics, where I volunteered to help run the physics in the field campaign at Guilfest 2011 and 2012.

    ·         In 2006 I took part in the young enterprise scheme in which I helped start up and run a small business over a period of roughly 8 months during which time it generated a small profit.

    ·         I would describe myself as a hard working, outgoing, friendly person who can work well as part of a group or on my own. I am an open minded and egger individual who relishes new challenges and strive to contribute to any situation.

    Employment history

    (Paid)

    Date: 2007-2009 (part time during term holidays)

    Employer: Pine Ridge Golf Club, Frimley, Surrey, GU16 9NX

    Job description: Casual bar and function staff.

    In this role I had extensive interaction with the customer in the form of both formal waiting at functions and informal roles within the setting of the bar. Other responsibilities include re-stocking of the bar and setting up prior to functions.

     

    (Voluntary)

    Date: September 2011 – may 2012

    Organization: UKC Fencing, University of Kent.

    Position: Armourer.

    Description: As Armourer my responsibilities included kit maintenance, re-stocking of the armory, handling kit orders and the training others in the club about kit. I feel that my success in this role demonstrates my technical abilities and my ability to lead a team.

     

    Date: 15th July 2011 and 13th-15th July 2012

    Organization: Institute of physics

    Position: Demonstrator

    This involved the presentation of “physics tricks” to the general public to raise awareness of physics and encourage all age groups to take an interest in the subject. I feel that my success in this role demonstrates my ability to concisely and confidently present to individuals and groups as well as my ability to work as part of a team.

     

    Education

    2007 – 2012: The University of Kent, Canterbury.

    2:1 with honours MPhys in Physics with Astrophysics

    Including a Foundation Year in Physics, Passed with Distinction

    1999 – 2007: Collingwood College, Camberley, Surrey

    A-levels: Physics D, Chemistry E, Math’s E, Geography (As) D

    GCSE’s: 8 including Science and Math’s at grades A to D

     

    Interests

    Whilst at university I was a member of the fencing club where I specialized in Epee, despite now being a graduate I still return to the club whenever I can to fence and socialize with the friends that are still at the university. In my spare time I also like model making, baking and other such involved creative activities. Recently I have started to teach myself 3D animation using the package blender, as I have always thought it an interesting medium and felt that it presented a new challenge. I also like some slightly more adventurous activity’s and am always up for a new challenge.
