As an experienced Quality Assurance Engineer I have well-developed skills in quality management and leading continuous improvement activities after having worked in different industry sectors and locations around the world. During my time at ESA’s ESTEC establishment, I worked as part of a team for the Internal Audit and Evaluation Service Directorate (DG-A) and collaborated with various teams and Directors with the aim of setting up the Agency’s first ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System. I am keen to return to working within the Aerospace industry after a period of personal development and training which has broadened my skills and experiences.

In my free-time I enjoy keeping active. Recently I completed the London to Brighton bike ride which has re-sparked my love for biking and has motivated me to get involved in other challenging sporting activities. Meditation is a routine activity which I have followed for over two years. It is a series of breathing techniques which I have found largely helps me to remain focused and calm while conducting my day-to-day activities.
