Summary

I am a Masters graduate in Remote Sensing and Planetary Science, and previously Astrophysics. I have a strong scientific and mathematical background, and experience in object-orientated programming in Python and web programming in HTML/Javascript/CSS. I have a Bitbucket account where I showcase my own projects.

In my academic studies, I used Python in a Linux environment for data processing, statistical analysis, and data visualisation tasks, using the numpy, scipy and matplotlib libraries. I am experienced with the Linux command-line, and a variety of software packages, including Geographical Information Systems software such as QGIS and ArcGIS, and data management and analysis with spreadsheets.

I have shown adaptability and an ability to learn new programming languages and tools quickly. In my previous experience I have found the opportunity to develop new skills stimulating, and would welcome further opportunity to do so in my next job.

Other interests

I participated in International Astronomical Youth Camps between 2004 and 2009. Each of these was a 3 week workshop involving young people (16-24) of a variety of nationalities and backgrounds.

I served on the Cambridge University Astronomical Society committee for 3 years. I was responsible for the website and newsletter for a year, and observing secretary for 2 years. The latter including being responsible for teaching CUAS members how to use the telescopes at the Institute of Astronomy.

I enjoy outdoor activities including hillwalking and cycling and have completed several cycle tours including a trek from John O’ Groats to Newcastle with my brother. On this trip, we were able to contrive to cross the border from Scotland into England heading north.
