I graduated with a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering with Advanced Innovation and Design at University of Bath in 2011.

I first cut my teeth in the professional engineering world working as an aerospace graduate gas turbine design engineer. I was based in Bristol, but often spent time at the Derby site, working on both civil and military Rolls-Royce engine projects.

In 2013, I moved to Surrey and started working for Jankel Armouring Limited, designing solutions for armoured vehicles and blast mitigating seating systems.

I currently work for a company called pi-top, who develop products for the educational technology industry. I am responsible for new and existing product design, testing and manufacture. I spend time in China at the company’s Shenzhen factory working alongside the production line and with suppliers to solve any manufacturing
