I’m an aspiring Space Engineer studying an integrated Masters degree in Aero/Astro Engineering with Spacecraft Engineering at Southampton University in the UK. I have always dreamed of working on space projects (I remember following the Beagle 2 mission intimately, and was incredibly inspired by the ambition of it). From previous employment I bring experience of leading teams in high pressure environments, working voluntarily to tight deadlines and communicating effectively with individuals and organisations. A year ago I changed career to follow my dream of working in the Space Industry. Now I have been elected President of the University of Southampton Spaceflight Society (SUSF) and am thoroughly enjoying the chance to lead such an amazing group of students to reach a far wider audience than ever before.
