    CV

    As a final-year PhD student from the University of Surrey, with a Masters degree in Space Systems Engineering, I have performed my own research and participated in several group projects. I have also undertaken a number of placements for OHB System AG, which has provided me with experience in the concept design selection and testing of space instrumentation, as well as working in an international environment.

    Education and Qualifications

    PhD in Electronic Engineering: “Advancing the Dual-Reciprocating Drill Design for Efficient Planetary Subsurface Exploration”
    Surrey Space Centre, University of Surrey, 2013 - Present.

    Outstanding Paper Award for Young Scientists: Awarded by the Committee on Space Research for the paper “Analysis of drill head designs for dual-reciprocating drilling technique in planetary regoliths.”

    This work investigated new techniques for improving the performance and furthering the design of the biologically-inspired dual-reciprocating drill. This included the testing of various drill heads, the design and construction of a novel integrated actuation mechanism and the effects of the presence of ice on the properties of lunar regolith.

    Skills developed: performing concept design and trade-off studies, mechanism construction and simulation using the Solid Edge CAD software, and the use of data acquisition systems with MatLab and Arduino.

    MEng with First Class Honours in Space Systems Engineering
    University of Southampton, 2008 - 12.

    Certificate of Merit: Awarded for the best final year (Part IV) results, 2012.

    Main topics covered:
    • Basic, flight, fluid and solid mechanics, engineering mathematics
    • Group design and engineering, including concurrent with space applications
    • Astronautics, aerospace engineering, thermodynamics, propulsion, materials
    • Spacecraft instrumentation, engineering and structural design
    • Electrical systems, avionics, control systems and robotics
    MatLab and Python programming and Solid Works CAD design

    Group project experience includes a final-year project to design a test-bed for a high-altitude balloon, planning of a moon orbiter mission using the concurrent design technique and working with physics students from Irish and Spanish universities to design a gamma-ray observatory satellite.


    Summer Course: Human Spaceflight and Exploration
    Achieved an A grade on the ECTS scale. Umea University, Sweden, 2010.

    A-Levels and GCSEs
    A-Level subjects and grades: Mathematics (A), Further Mathematics (A), Physics (A), Chemistry (A), German (C)
    10 GSCEs grade A* - A, including Maths and English
    Sir Roger Manwood’s School, Sandwich, 2001 - 08

    Relevant Work Experience

    Research Assistant on behalf of OHB System AG
    • Two placements at IWF in Graz, Austria, to design new preparation procedures for the controlled development of icy lunar polar regolith simulants, 2014.
    • Three placements at IWF to examine the cementation and crust formation of Mars regolith simulants, and to test the operation of the PSDDS and Crushing Station subsystems for the ExoMars SPDS, 2015 - 16.
    • Developed a concept design for the L-GRASP sampling acquisition tool as part of a trade-off study by Selex ES for the Luna-Resurs lander mission, 2014.

    Intern at the University of Southampton and Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd
    • Worked with PhD students on the data and power budget analysis of the European Student Moon Orbiter, 2011.

    Other Work and Volunteer Experience

    • Offered tutorial support for mathematics and electronic engineering students.
    • Given tours to UCAS students of the Surrey Space Centre.
    • Events director and secretary committee member of the UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS).
    • Volunteered to help pupils in various workshops at Wyvern Technology College during its Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) week.

    Hobbies and Interests

    I have played the piano for over ten years, and have started to learn the guitar. I enjoy playing football and squash, as well as going cycling and jogging. I also enjoy reading, and would like to write my own novel in the future.
