I’m a flexible and resourceful satellite systems engineer with over 10 years experiences in all aspects of satellite design and development, from initial design through integration, test and in-orbit operation. I also have a good knowledge of Ground to Space aspects and system design and verification. I have excellent communication and inter-personal skills, self-motivation, and a problem solving based approach to my work.
Having spent my career to date working on international projects, I am accustomed and comfortable working throughout Europe and in a multinational environment.
I’m looking to be challenged both technically and personally and to further my knowledge in a satellite or system environment.
