Technical lead responsible for the planning and delivery of business-critical Electric Propulsion IRAD test campaign. Performing technical analysis, trade studies, and coordinating across the team to achieve requirements on budget and time.
Responsible for identifying and evaluating effort and risks associated with EP product development activities to change design baseline, and reviewing existing designs for cost drivers in support of future EP strategy and product development.
Technical lead coordinating development of UK Space Launch capability, supporting competitive proposals for test and evaluation of launch vehicles, spaceport development, and concepts of operation.
Delivering technical analysis and MATLAB tool development to support investigations into BepiColombo endurance test and flight data. Delivery and review of next gen thruster designs and experimental verification test plans for GIESEPP PDR.
Developing tools and methodology for analyzing and modelling the production and cost of any T-Series thruster, providing the backbone of the EP future strategy.
QinetiQ [Graduate Space Systems Engineer] September 2016 - September 2018
International Berthing & Docking Mechanisms [QinetiQ Space NV, Belgium] - 4 Months
Delivered technical analysis for the validation and verification of mechanism design and system level simulation. Managed requirements compliance and verification for both internal design and subcontractor designs against functional requirements and DFMR practices.
Supported system level mass and power budgets, and response to RIDs. Identified non-compliances with ECSS standards and defined test programs to solve them, designing innovative test set ups to utilize internal capability and reduce cost.
Delivered prototype development of hardware for the IBDM system to fulfill key requirements. Took hardware from initial concepts through to testable models in an ambitious timeframe, rapidly iterating the design and coordinating between SME’s.
Electric Propulsion - 10 Months
Supported BepiColombo lifetime assessment, and developed novel data analysis and visualization scripts in MATLAB to support testing and process improvement.
Planned project test campaigns, managed delivery schedule and wrote test procedures for HPEPS thruster development.
Delivered technical analysis and process improvement for thruster production anomalies and NCRs supporting the closing of investigations and increased process control.
Modelling & Simulation - 3 Months
Delivered a comprehensive investigation of a multiphase 3D thermal transfer and fluid flow problem in ANSYS Fluent. Bound problem to a 2D parametric study, working to find the driving variables and break the problem down to its core factors.
Solved and optimized a 'big data' project in MATLAB, developing a script to model and visualize patterns in a dataset of 90+ million geospatial data points and allow raw data and patterns to be interrogated both over time and spatial location.
Space Weather - 3 Months
Led a two-person technical team to develop ionospheric analysis tools in Python, and conduct a technical data analysis into the results produced to identify key parameters.
Defined and coordinated tool development strategy, integration, and analysis methodology.
Robotics - 4 Months
Worked in a small fast paced team to design Remote Under Vehicle IED Disposal Capability for a next-gen robot, taking a set of requirements from initial concepts, through to a functioning and fully tested prototype within an ambitious fixed schedule.
Worked closely with team to perform conceptual design, sizing, and interface between robot and payload, identifying mature and immature technologies that could provide the niche capability required.
HMG - 2015 Summer Internship
Executive Officer within Her Majesty's Government, designed, developed, and debugged control system test software, in MATLAB, Simulink, and C, to interface with developmental hardware over a TCP connection in order to perform integration testing in a simulated environment.
Developed a novel visualisation program for the entire system, which rendered various 3D representations of the environment and the platform in real time to allow the user to execute and monitor the program remotely.
CERN - 2014 Summer Internship
Developed an auto tuning PID algorithm in C, to stabilise the temperature of a Silicon Photomultipliers with a peltier element in the HCAL experiment.
I engage with the space community as often as possible, regularly representing the team at STEM events, and I recently joined the Space Generation Advisory Council as part of their working group looking at Space Technology for Disaster Management where I am co-author on a paper looking at SAR enabled CubeSats for disaster management and mitigation.
I competed in the Airbus New Space Challenge 2018, placing 2nd across a competitive academic group with our engineering and business proposal for a Lunar Guidance, Navigation, and Telecommunication Satellite System.
I am registered as an Associate of the Royal Aeronautical Engineering Society, and am working towards my chartership currently.
Cranfield University [2017 - 2019] (78%)
MSc Astronautics & Space Engineering (Part Time)
Cranfield University - MSc Dissertation
Currently writing my MSc dissertation for Cranfield University on Orbital Intercept of Space Debris for Active Removal. This combines my interests in orbital mechanics, system design, and space debris as I'm looking at optimising removal process through low energy intercepts and transfers. As part of this I am working with ESA DISCOS, and MATLAB tools I've written to analyse data, eventually intending to feed into mission and trajectory planning tools such as STK.
Durham University [2012 - 2016]
MEng (Hons) General Engineering with Aeronautics
Durham University - MEng Dissertation
Investigated the superspreading effect of nanofluids on solid surfaces. Particular focus on the effect of nanoparticle concentration on the terminal velocity of nanofluid droplets running down an inclined glass plane. Developed unique methodology and computer vision scripts to automate tracking and characterisation of droplets in experimental setup.
