    Specialised from second year onwards in aeromechanics, with a further specialisation from third year in aerodynamics and propulsion.

    Year in industry, 2013-14: Worked as a Mass Properties Engineer within the Flight Physics department at Airbus, Filton. This included working as part of an international project team developing methods and tools for mass estimation, using Python and MATLAB to perform engineering calculations and develop design tools.

    Final year project: The design and analysis of a motorised momentum exchange tether for raising a satellite into a geostationary parked orbit.

    Degree classification: 2:1

    2003– 10 Kesgrave High School, Ipswich

    A Level: Maths (A), Business and Economics (A), Physics (B), Further Maths (B)

    GCSE: 11 subjects (6 A*, 5 A) including Maths (A*) and English Language (A*)

    Technical Skills

    Problem Solving - I am a rational thinker, quick to adapt to new situations as well as a fast and intuitive learner with a flair for problem solving. I relish challenges and always set myself high standards, with determination to achieve highly. These traits allowed me to develop innovative solutions to challenging problems faced in project work during my year in industry, such as creating an iterative method to perform structural optimisation of landing gear models.

    Programming - During my year in industry with Airbus I developed Python scripts for engineering calculations and the 3D visualisation of structures. I also used Python to develop a Graphical User Interface for these utilities so they could be implemented easily by a user. I am familiar with tools and languages such as MATLAB, Mathematica and Java, having used them to solve problems throughout my studies and in work.

    Use of Engineering Software - I have experience with NASTRAN and ANSYS for Finite Element Analysis solutions to structural problems and have used ANSYS FLUENT to solve flow problems. I have used Solidworks and Hypermesh to build and interrogate 3D CAD models. I have also used in-house software at Airbus to perform landing gear and wing loading analysis.  

    Word and Number Processing - I am an experienced user of word and number processing programs, such as MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I have used these to present both technical and non-technical information, as well as to conduct data analysis and plan future work.

    Interpersonal Skills

    Teamwork - I have played a part in many teams, both in project work and for sporting events. I developed an Unmanned Air Vehicle as part of a team for a third year group project and was involved as part of a team of volunteers from multiple academic disciplines in constructing a High Altitude Balloon. Due to this I have developed strong teamwork skills such as listening, ensuring everyone is heard, promoting relevant discussion and maintaining group focus on a task.  

    Leadership - As president of the Sheffield Space Society and as a former member of the school council and a senior prefect, I have held positions of responsibility and accountability. In my role as president of SpaceSoc I called and ran regular committee meetings. In these meetings I listened to feedback and ideas from the committee and distributed new tasks accordingly. I used my enthusiasm for science and engineering to drive change and develop a better society for the members.   

    Communication - I am a proficient communicator, both written and verbally. I have delivered many presentations throughout my studies and in the workplace, from this I have become a confident, persuasive and engaging speaker. I also have experience with updating project supervisors on my progress, presenting concise technical information in order to avoid unnecessary time wasting.  

    Positions held / Achievements

    • Currently employed as a Change Co-ordinator for Rolls-Royce in-service gas turbine products by Assystem UK (October 2015 - present).

    • Involved in the foundation of SpaceSoc, the University of Sheffield branch of UKSEDS (UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space).

    • Held three committee positions in SpaceSoc over three years (2012-15), including President in 2014/15, where the society was awarded UKSEDS branch of the year at the 2015 National Student Space Conference.

    • Selected to participate in the “Going Global Through Language” Suffolk gifted linguists project for French – 2008

    • Spent two weeks at British Telecom, Adastral Park, Martlesham. Included: conducting tests on beta stage products, creating databases and the evaluation of user guides – 2007  

    • Hold a full clean UK driving licence.

    Hobbies / Interests

    As an active member of UKSEDS and an e-associate member of the RAeS I regularly attend space and aviation themed workshops, events and lectures around the UK. I enjoy meeting people who share my interests in engineering, science and technology, using discussions with them to generate a strong understanding of the aerospace industry. I am inspired by endeavours such as the Virgin Galactic venture, the Mars Curiosity mission, the ESA Rosetta mission and the Bloodhound land speed record attempt. I am strongly motivated by the prospect of working on similar cutting-edge technology.

    My hobbies include: Racket sports, air and automotive displays, visiting aviation museums, amateur astronomy, flying remote control aircraft, building / painting small scale model aircraft, popular science, live sport and music events and reading science-fiction / fantasy novels.
