Space Applications and Sales Engineer at Clyde Space
I joined Clyde Space around a year ago and work within the business development team with a particular focus on satellite applications.
My undergraduate degree was in Aero-Mechanical Engineering and PhD was in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Specifically, my PhD was looking at developing novel orbits for Earth Observation satellites to improve monitoring of the Earths polar regions. I was then a Research Associate at the University of Strathclyde for a few years as part of the Advanced Forming Research Centre and the Advanced Space Concepts Lab.
I always had an interest in space and enjoyed maths and science at school. I also had an excellent Physics teacher who encouraged me to apply for the Scottish Space School. After participating in the programme at the Johnson Space Center in Houston I decided on Engineering.
