Graduated with BEng(Hons) in Electronic engineering from the University of Westminster, London. Industrial placement completed with NXP Semiconductors in Southampton, UK. My placement involved testing and verification of poly-fuse OTP (One Time Programmable) storage module using scripting languages such as Perl and TCL. It also involved the development of an encrypted and secure poly-fuse programming GUI, using C and Java. This allowed clients to program encrypted security keys in the OTP memory.

In 2007 I joined Xyratex Technology Ltd as a hardware design engineer. I worked as part of a team developing head and media testers for hard drives and network storage solutions. Main duties included the development of a real time embedded system (Microcontrollers and FPGA) that controls the mechanical loading and unloading of the read/write magnetic head, onto the rotating media disk, with controlled speed and precise positioning avoiding crashes and damage. I also worked on system schematic diagrams and board layouts, system level integration and testing.

I commenced a PhD in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University of Glasgow. The aim of my PhD was to study microwave and millimetre-wave low noise systems and devices using CMOS technology.

Within the Cronin Group I collaborate on a diverse range of projects, such as complex chemical systems, chemistry robots and 3D-printing.
