    Career & Education
     
    University of Strathclyde & Clyde Space Ltd - PhD Researcher (Sep ‘11 – Present)
    The aim of my research is to investigate modern approaches to mission design of large space networks (multiple space vehicles and ground nodes) and introduce novel methods to quantify performance of the system. Specific application to nano-satellites is considered, owing to the promise they show with regard to mass manufacture and deployment. I have developed computational models to verify the methods being examined.
     
    Technical University of Munich - Visiting Researcher (Sep ‘14 – Jan ‘15)
    I will spend the final 4 months of 2014 at the Institute for Astronautics, Technical University of Munich (TUM), under the supervision of DLR Astronaut Prof. Ulrich Walter for part of my PhD studies. My objectives during this time are to finalise my PhD research and gain insight and knowledge from an exciting new team of researchers.
     
    Clyde Space Ltd - Simulation Engineer (Sep ‘11 – Jul ‘14)
    I developed numerical simulation models to help with ground station pass planning, energy collection verification and flight behaviour validation as contribution towards Scotland’s first satellite, UKube1. My models are also being used in support of future Clyde Space projects, such as the PICASSO satellite.
     
    INCOSE - SSWG - Team Contributor (Oct ‘12 – Present)
    I am an active member of the INCOSE Space Systems Working Group (SSWG), who are developing a generalised CubeSat system architecture in support of project model-based systems engineering (MBSE).
     
    REXUS – StrathSat-R - Mechanical Engineer (Dec ‘11 – May ‘14)
    I was part of the design and development team for the StrathSat-R experiment on the Rocket Experiments for University Students (REXUS) programme - an ESA/DLR-funded sounding rocket launch opportunity. StrathSat-R was an experiment comprising two ejectable payloads (CubeSats) that included inflatable structures for use as potential de-orbit devices.
     
    Hi-SEAS Mission - Mission Support (Jun ‘12 – Aug ‘13)
    I was a reserve crew member and member of the mission support team during the 1st Hawai’i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (Hi-SEAS) study, in 2013. Hi-SEAS is a food study, which aims to identify the psychological and physiological effects of applying different food types during long duration space missions, such as future Mars missions. The practicalities of the study take the form of 4, 6, 8 & 12 month periods of isolation for a team of 6, in a Martian-like habitat on the saddle plain between Mauna Kea & Mauna Loa, Hawai’i.
     
    Magna Parva Ltd - Design Engineer (Sep ‘08 - Aug ‘11)
    My efforts were focused on the challenging task of concept-to-flight design engineering for innovative space science payloads as part of a small team. Activities included mechanical and thermal analysis, test campaign planning and implementation, design for manufacture, system verification and document writing. Project examples include the Life Marker Chip (ExoMars), the Mercury Imaging X-ray Spectrometer (MIXS) (BepiColombo), the Remote Interface Unit Structure (BepiColombo) and a Miniature Release Mechanism (internal patented project).
     
    Southampton University Air Squadron (AuxRAF) - Officer Cadet (Nov ‘04 - Aug ‘08)
    During my time in the RAF Air Squadron at Southampton University, I took part in numerous leadership and team-building activities, between which I learned the basics of flying, sailing and other adventurous training activities. I was the Sports Representative of the Executive Committee in 06/07 and the Adventurous Training representative in 07/08, for which I developed and executed the sport and AT programme for the squadron.
     
    University of Southampton - Bachelors/Masters Student (Oct ‘04 - Jun ‘08)
    MEng (1st Class honors) in Aerospace Engineering - specialising in Astronautics.
    Main areas of study: Spacecraft Systems Engineering, Celestial Mechanics, Space Mission Design, Structures, Optimisation, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Materials, Aerodynamics, Computing and Mathematics.
     
    Academy of Contemporary Music BTEC Dip. - Student (Sep ‘03 - Jun ‘04)
    BTEC Diploma (distinction) in Music Production, from the Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford, UK.
