Summary of Professional Expertise

As Field Instrument Engineer at CEH Bangor, I design, maintain and upgrade environmental monitoring sites situated in remote locations.  I use renewable energy solutions such as solar panels and wind turbines connected to regulators and banks of batteries to power data logging systems.  I wire data loggers using wiring diagrams and program them  to record data and calculate meaningful outputs for analysis.  I design data logging and telemetry systems using Labview and Linux tools to remotely control data loggers and to synchronise data onto shared storage.  I quality control the data using SQL, ‘R’, and Excel and produce graphs and reports.  I also design, test and produce custom circuit boards for in-house instruments using Multisim Electronics Design Software.

I have a BSc in Computer Science from McGill University (First) and an HND in Electronic/Electrical Engineering (Distinction) from London South Bank University.  I have Off-Road Driving, Outdoor First Aid and Outdoor Winter Skills certificates.  I am a motivated, proficient worker and enjoy creating robust solutions to technically challenging problems.  I have the teamwork and communication skills to successfully meet the objectives of the project.
