Hello and welcome to my professional website! This website is the home for snippets of information regarding, among other things, my studies, research interests and publications, and career pursuits.

I have kept this site as simple as possible so I can change things easily as and when required.

This site showcases many, but not all, of my personal skills and qualities: if you would like a copy of my competency and skills based CV, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I would also appreciate if you could contact me should you happen to stumble across any broken links and the like!

About me

Since finishing my PhD with the University of Plymouth in December 2016, I undertook various non-contractual roles within the university, which included research, demonstrating/teaching to all stages of the BSc (Hons) chemistry course, STEM outreach, laboratory management (ISO 9001 documentation), and conducting consultancy work using a novel oil separation method (known as T-SEP). I also worked for several months at Knight Scientific Limited full time whilst part-time conducting consultancy work and teaching/demonstrating at the university, and joining the Royal Naval Reserves (RNR).

My current role is with Babcock International working as a Safety Engineer; I’ve been on the Graduate Scheme since September 2018, which has been a very unique experience indeed! I’ve worked as a contractor for the Submarine Portfolio Office in the MoD Abbey Wood, been on some amazing experiences with the RNR, and seen inside the submarine’s reactor compartment! I have one final period of work, lasting 6 months, that’ll involve using Python to automate the testing of a corporate software before being rolled out for use. Then in September 2020 I will start work as a Probabilistic Safety Assessment analyst in Devonport – I can’t wait!
