PROFILE

Since 2010, I have been working towards my Ph.D. in astronautics on computational modelling of the space debris environment. I have held various research positions at the university and worked in a variety of engineer, delegate and internships positions in the aerospace sector. This has given me a broad set of computing, engineering, and managing skills. I am passionate about public speaking, enjoy working as part of a team, and pride myself with excellent problem solving, organisational and project management skills.

            My future aim is to establish a career in the space industry within the UK,working to either broaden the outer space environment capabilities within the UK space sector or developing satellite applications for GIS systems. I am further looking to increase my professional development and progress towards becoming a chartered engineer.
