I'm an Electronic and Electrical Engineer who attended Plymouth University, since then I have worked in industrial monitoring and now work for the British Antarctic Survey as a Radar engeneer.
Plymouth University: Electronic and Electrical Engineering BEng
British Antarctic Survey August 2014-March 2016:I operated, maintained and improved a range of experiments in one of the harshest environments on earth. The main part of my role was maintaining two radar systems, SUPERDarn and MF Radar. SUPERDarn is a frequency agile, 8 to 18 MHz, radar which I maintained and assisted with the installation of a major upgrade. MF is a fixed 2.7 MHz system investigating upper atmospheric ionisation. While at BAS I also maintained a network of field sites, installed and developed a high accuracy GPS tracking system and maintained optical instruments. While with BAS I was also part of the advanced medical team. This involved scenario, first aid, patient recovery, diagnosis and treatment training as well as some practical usage of these skills.
Asset Handling June 2013 - August 2014: While at Asset Handling I developed sensor systems for both asset condition monitoring and remote footfall counting. Both these projects where mine from conception to manufacture. I also made a TCP/IP server and Cross Platform UDP server for the reception of data from some embedded systems. I also planned installations of such systems for inductrial sites.
Asset Handling July - August 2011: I worked on build a share point server and organised data from a large number of sources. I also assisted with the development of new sensor systems.
PCB Design: I have experience of circuit design using a wide range of integrated circuits, as well as micro-controllers and microprocessors in several different CAD packages.
Radio Frequency Design: I have designed a range of filters and amplifiers for my “Microprocessor System Design” module, including filtering and amplification subsystems for a digital to analogue converter.
CAD: Learnt to use 2D and 3D CAD packages including Solid works.
Team Leadership: While at UPSU:Radio I managed a team of people and instigated systems to improve communication between radio station members.
Team Working: While running the radio station and completing my degree, I worked well as part of teams containing people with varied skills.
Communication: In addition to training members of the radio station effectively, I am also a scout leader and regularly communicate skills, ideas and instructions to large groups. While at BAS working in a small comunity these skills are key.
