I completed my A-levels from St Brendan’s in 2007 before studying Physics at Warwick University graduating in 2010. I decided to continue studying and attended Heidelberg University, the oldest university in Germany. Here I studied particle physics for a year before completing my master’s dissertation in Heidelberg’s Institute for Environmental Physics. 

On returning to the UK I took an engineering job within the advanced research group at the missile company MBDA. Since then I have moved into different areas of the company to gain more engineering experience and have worked on technology research, early phase concepting, and am currently working on Sea Ceptor a missile defence system being integrated into the Royal Navy’s T23 Frigates from next near.
