    Summary

    I have a Ph.D from the University of Edinburgh in astrophysics and instrumentation, specifically in development and integration of novel adaptive optic systems and the formation and evolution of massive star clusters. I have performed complex mathematical simulations and analysis on large data sets, have an in depth knowledge of instrument development and scientific method, and an ability to tackle problems from a range of angles. I have worked effectively as part of large multi-national teams towards instrument development, accurate analysis and coherent presentations, while meeting strict deadlines. I have also carried out large individual projects driven by self development and self motivation. After completing my Ph.D, I embarked on a self-funded 2 year trip around the world. During this time I worked for 5 months at a stockbrokers as head of IT and data security.

    Sept 2006-April University of Edinburgh and Royal Observatory of Edinburgh April 2010

    • Carried out laboratory testing and integration of novel adaptive optic systems, planning and carrying out specific tests. Programmed atmospheric simulations to carry out theoretical and specification performance tests. Completed data analysis projects on large data sets.

    • Provided customer services for the astronomy help-line. Answered telephone questions and replied to the public’s questions through email and letters on varying astronomy and atmospheric physics matters. Also involved website maintenance (HTML).

    • Delivered astronomy tutorial lessons and supervised physics laboratory sessions for undergraduate students, including marking.

    Sept 2004 & Sept 2005 & Leicester University, Physics and Astronomy Department

    • Devised lesson plans for undergraduate courses, including implementing the newly devised problem based learning classes.

    • Created promotional booklets and posters on the science carried out within the department. Jun-Sept Zurich Financial Services Ltd, Swindon 2003

    • Worked on the Zurich mainframe, setting up accounts for new employees.

    Programming and Technology Experience

    Instruments - Have worked on the multi-object adaptive optic demonstrator (CANARY), a N-IR multi-object spectrograph (EMIR), proto-type pick and place positioner (Starpicker), and analysed the performance of the multi-conjugate adaptive optic demonstrator (MAD).

    IDL - Produced complex mathematical simulation including Fourier Transforms, time series analysis, cross-correlation functions, vector and image manipulation, monte carlo simulations and other statistical analysis. Also constructed and analysed large (+10Gb) data sets.

    Websites -  Designed, delevoped and maintained production websites using PHP. Developed commercial educational website for stockbroking company using Ruby on Rails. Stored encrypted personal data following merchant bank and national data storage standards using MySQL.

    Other - Have used Linux command line for 6 years. Used Python for small data analysis projects and instrumentation programs. Produced multiple publications in LATEX and am well versed in astronomy package IRAF. Completed Java course and currently learning C++ in more depth.

    Relevant Skills

    Data Analysis - I have extensive data analysis experience. This includes programming complex mathematical Analysis simulations for predictive analysis, handling large data sets, and testing and analysing novel instrumentation performance and integration.

    Communication - I have developed clear and strong communication skills working within large multi-national, inter-disciplinary teams where understanding a range of view points while having the confidence to project personal view points is vital. I have presented scientific methodologies and results at international conferences, conveyed complex scientific ideas after gauging the level of understanding through the public astronomy help-line, and designed and tutored undergraduate courses.

    Time Management - When working within astronomical instrumentation I brought together multiple components of the project at the same time and on tight deadlines, developing efficient organisation and time management skills. This was equally true when self-managing highly successfully individual projects which ran concurrently.
