What does a typical day at work involve?
Keeping a clear head, lots of calculations, always having a pen handy and a little stand-up exercise!
What’s the most unexpected thing about your job?
Simple calculation error.
Did you have any role models when you were younger? What inspired you to do the job you’re doing now?
My father is a famous architect. He told me that if I wanted to have something that doesn't exist I had to imagine it first and then make it out of mud and plastic - my first prototypes!
Any influential toys during childhood?
Your favourite subjects at school?
Maths and physics. I could get high scores in these two subjects, only.
Your reason for choosing this career?
I designed drones and payloads for drones, and I know drones can help people but also can hurt people. I think I can use my knowledge of designing drones to make sure they only provide help where necessary.
Tell me about your career path to date?
My career path is a lot like the upgrades in various computer games. I finished a lot of projects and got some patents and awards as upgrade value! My title has changed from junior engineer to senior engineer. At first I worked for the team, and now i organise and lead the team!
If you could have any job what would it be? How does it differ from what you’re doing?
I wanted my work to involve education so that I could share my passion for engineering work with students. I have some experience of making mistakes in engineering and I wanted to tell young engineers about them so that they can learn from my mistakes.
Your advice to a young person considering a career in STEM?
Don’t let your imagination be your boundary. The future will be shaped by the ideas and dreams of our young engineers.
