    Personal Profile

    I am an Aerospace Engineering graduate with special focus on space aspects. I have also done an MSc in Space Technology and Planetary Exploration at Surrey University. I am confident using computers and can quickly learn new programs. I have some experience in the use of various 3D design tools involving both CAD and CAM and image manipulation software, which I am constantly developing as I use these skills for the design of small models and projects. I am very comfortable with Microsoft Office. I also have good practical skills such as soldering, I am confident using manufacturing equipment such as lathes, bandsaws, mills and hand tools. Being an avid model maker, I can work accurately on small scales.

    Recently I was also a key member in a group looking to design, construct and then operate a CubeSat in Lunar orbit. Over the course of a year I went from a member of the group to leading the weekly meetings and, as I was the only one in the group with knowledge of space mission and satellite design, practically designing the whole mission and satellite myself. My first language is English; I do not speak another language fluently but am willing to learn in my own time if necessary. I hold a full UK driving Licence.

     

    Education

    MSc Space Technology and Planetary Exploration:

    Merit

                Surrey University, Guildford. Sept 2011-Sept 2012

                Modules in:

                Spacecraft systems design                                           

                Space Robotics                                                           

                Antennas and Propagation                                           

                Spacecraft Dynamics and Control                                 

                Advanced Guidance, Navigation and Control                 

                Launch Vehicles and Propulsion                                               

                Satellite Remote Sensing                                              

                Space Missions                                                            

    Individual project

    My individual project was to analyse a design concept for a Mars aerobot then develop a scale version to show that flight would be possible on Mars. By the end of the project I had developed a CAD model, which I used for both the design and for simulations, and a remote controlled aircraft which represented the Mars concept. During the project I improved upon my CAD and solid modelling skills.

    BEng Aerospace Engineering with Astronautics and Space Technology:

    Lower Second Class

    Kingston University London. London. Sept 2007-July 2010

    Modules in:

    Introduction to Astronautics, where I achieved the highest grade in the year and received the Vega Space Systems Award. This module involved all the basics for astronautics including orbital mechanics, comms, re-entry and thermal protection systems.

    Space Vehicle Design 1 and Space Vehicle design 2, which involved further development on introduction to astronautics topics and work on launch systems.

    2 years with courses on Aerodynamics and Propulsion.

    Engineering Computing

    Aerospace Structures and Dynamics

    Individual Project

    My individual project was to design, construct and launch a level 3 UKRA certified high-powered rocket. Skills developed include time management, planning, resourcing components, material testing, predictions for how physical objects react to external forces and report writing skills. By the end of the project I had designed my rocket however supplier issues meant that I have not yet built it although I do wish to do so in the near future.

    The group project was to design and construct a level 1 UKRA certified rocket and use it to launch a scientific payload that was also designed & built by the group. My role was to design and construct the rocket as it allowed for an overlap with my individual project. Working on this project improved my team working skills as well as my small group skills. The rocket was built however, time constraints meant that it could not be launched.

    Foundation degree

    Kingston University London. Kingston 2006-2007

    A Levels

    Northgate High School and Sixth form. Ipswich.  2004-2006

    Electronics, Physics, Mathematics (AS), General studies & Design and Technology

    GCSE’s

                Northgate High School and Sixth Form. Ipswich 2000-2004

    Experience

    Co-Founder nPAE Precision Astro Engineering

    I am currently starting up a small business designing and manufacturing optical accessories for telescopes. To date we have produced our first full aluminium prototype which involved me designing the accessory in CAD, making several plastic prototypes using my 3D printer which I used to refine the design, then producing engineering drawings, liaising with several manufacturers and suppliers to get a prototype built and the off the shelf components delivered and finally performing quality control checks on all the parts. Having made our first fully realised and working prototype we took it to several stargazing events to get feedback from our target audience. Following this feedback I am currently in the process of designing an expanded range which consists of 3 variations of the original made from a wider range of materials and manufacturing methods.

     

    Sales Team Leader. Maplin Electronics LTD

    My role as a sales team leader at Maplin electronics was to; serve customers, to help customers with any enquiries, re-stock shelves, answer technical questions on the wide range of products sold, give advice on the best methods of solving any problems that a customer might have, to manage the other staff on the shop floor and to open and close the shop. These latter responsibilities are where I try my best to keep my analytical and problem solving skill sharp. In my time working at Maplin I have helped people to design electric bikes, size battery and solar power systems for boats and houses in other countries. I have helped with the preliminary design of several final year projects in all fields from Art to aerospace. I have repaired computers that should not have been repairable. In short I did my best to put my skills and knowledge to the test on a day to day basis so that I remained sharp.

     

    Assistant. Cambridge Optical sciences. Ipswich

    In this 4-week placement I was tasked with the designing and building of a prototype surveillance robot. At the end of the placement I had to give a presentation on the project and what I had achieved in the time provided. By the end of the placement a functional prototype had been constructed and a second was nearly completed. The skills I took from this placement were working to very tight deadlines, short presentation skills and quickly working through design problems.

     

    Hobbies/interests

    Amateur astronomy and astro-photography. As often as I can I use my personal telescope and SLR camera to image deep sky objects and planets. This involves stacking multiple images using specialist software in order to obtain a clear, well-defined image.

    Photography.

    Prop making. I enjoy making props for science fiction costumes such as Bluetooth versions of the star trek communicators and a few larger items such a half scale Stargate that I designed and built for a friends Cub camp. Design work such as this is something I enjoy greatly and have come up with several ideas that I am in the process of developing. I am currently in the process of researching possible construction methods for starting a small model design and construction business to be able to expand my love of design work and prop making.

    I am a very avid science fiction fan and enjoy going to conventions and other events. This also provides me with the opportunity to demonstrate my engineering abilities and imagination, and to obtain new ideas for small projects.
