I am a research student at Cardiff University studying nonlinear elasticity. This position, like my previous employment, is a cross between mathematics, engineering and computer science. My future plans involve research into design, manufacture and optimisation of microstructures for biomechanical applications.

Career Experience

    HBM nCode - Software Engineer (Jul 2012 – Dec 2013, Jun 2014 - Jan 2015)
    • HBM nCode create software for managing timerseries data (vibration, temperature, pressure) for engineering analysis, which is best known for (but not limited to) FEA for detecting fatigue and predicting cycles to failure.

    • As a software engineer on the nCode Automation product I predominantly worked in data management and processing solutions. In an Agile development environment I experienced the full design lifecycle, from analysis of initial customer requirements to testing solutions for scalability and future proofing. In my most notable project I was subproject manager for creating new functionality in Automation for detecting anomalies in newly collected data, based on 'envelopes' of previous data. This involved writing statistical processes on timeseries data in Python, creating migration tools using Java and SQL (XML outputs) and modifying Automation's functionality and user interface. I was also the system administrator for the Global Powder Metallurgy Database.

    Pinnacle Consulting Engineers - Undergraduate Engineer (Jul 2008 – Oct 2008)
    • Working with Civil Engineers on large-scale projects involving Computer Aided Design, resolving forces in structures, on-site damage assessment, snow and wind load calculations, client meetings and feasibility reports.
