    Current Position

    PhD Student

    October 2010 – Present: Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

    Project Title: Design of Novel Hybrid Propulsion transfers

    Through my research I have developed a novel hybrid propulsion transfer and optimisation methodology. I have gained experience in modelling and optimising high and low-thrust transfers, both analytically and numerically. I have also applied the hybrid transfer to several relevant transfers, primarily LEO/GTO - GEO transfers, for medium to large satellite platforms (1000 – 8000 kg) with current and near-term propulsion systems. This has particularly focussed on the new Alphabus satellite specification due to its use of high and low-thrust propulsion systems. The transfer has demonstrated significant improvements in fuel mass compared to conventional high-thrust transfers (Hohmann and bi-elliptic) and, due to its definition, will also reduce radiation loads on a spacecraft compared to current hybrid and low-thrust transfers. Through this project I have gained experience in mission analysis, guidance and navigation of spacecraft. I have also learnt to manage all aspects of a project through experience and a formal professional project management qualification I have gained (CAPM).

    Past Work Experience

    Strathclyde University

    Tutoring and Lecturing Position

    Glasgow, Scotland, Dates: October 2010 – Present

     

    Alongside my PhD I am also responsible for tutoring and lecturing undergraduate classes. Through this I have gained fantastic experience in communicating complex ideas and helping the students learn and use complex engineering theory for ‘real-life’ engineering problems. Classes involved: Systems Engineering, FEA, Matlab, MathCAD

     

    Weir Services – Power and Industrial Division

    Graduate Placement

    Alloa, Scotland, Dates: June 2009 – September 2009

     

    During this placement I gained exposure to Lean principles and implemented a total planned maintenance schedule to capture maintenance costs and improve machine reliability; ultimately improving the performance of the service centre. I worked directly with management and workshop personnel in this role, allowing further development of my teamwork and communication skills while also gaining experience of working to strict project deadlines.

    Skills

    Teamwork

    ·         At the advanced space concepts laboratory, we develop ideas as part of a small team and then share them amongst the whole department at a weekly colloquia. This encourages great teamwork and allows ideas to be developed to their full potential.

    ·         While studying in Sweden, I embraced the opportunity to train with the Swedish Military for a course in Arctic Survival. Out of my comfort zone and the only native English speaker, I was tasked with communicating the group orders among all members in a task in which we had to construct a snow-hole to spend the night.

    Communication

    ·         I have gained presentation experience from several situations: presenting my research/work to fellow colleagues, experts in the industry at conferences and engineering management through my industry placements.

    ·         While on placement at Weir Services. I was the main link between management and workshop personnel for my project. I had to ensure both parties knew exactly what to do at every stage of the project.

    Leadership

    ·         In 2011, a few friends and I entered an engineering TV show broadcast on a UK satellite TV channel, Sky 1, named Safebreakers. I was appointed team captain and was responsible for organising the team, making critical design decisions and ensuring we stayed within the budget. This was a novel management experience for me and required quick, clear and effective thinking which I believe I demonstrated as we went on to beat our competitors and additionally, win the grand prize of £5000 with a superb end of series episode.

    Interests

    I enjoy keeping up to date with current affairs: specifically technology innovation in engineering and business news. I also have a love to learn new skills which is why I pursued a PhD and I hope to continue you this throughout my career. Personally, I am a highly motivated and active person and enjoy competing in many different activities. These include Football, Mountain-biking, Running, Squash and Winter Sports. I have completed a marathon, several half-marathons, a seven hour endurance mountain-biking race and several triathlons. I have also represented both my local club and county in national golf competitions. I believe my participation and high level of performance in these competitions highlights my determination and commitment to any challenge I take on. I enjoy experiencing new cultures and environments and have travelled through South East Asia and worked and lived in both Australia and New Zealand which I think demonstrates my flexibility and adaptability.
