I have always enjoyed solving problems. My background in science, and career in technology, have allowed me the opportunity to help solve some fascinating problems for customers and for the advancement of knowledge.

I have a PhD in Theoretical Nuclear Physics and an MPhys in Physics with Nuclear Astrophysics, both from the University of Surrey. As part of my MPhys degree, I spent a research year at the prestigious University of Notre Dame, in South Bend, Indiana. My research involved trying to better understand where and how elements heavier than iron are produced in the universe.

Since completing my PhD, I have spent the last 13 years working in the technology sector; first at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence (formally Detica) and for the last year, at In-Space Missions. During my career at Applied Intelligence, I fulfilled several strategic service roles including Service Architect for various cyber security solutions and products, and Quality and Global Process Manager for fraud detection software products. I gained experience working for a diverse range of customers including commercial, UK government and international government customers.

Since joining In-Space, I have refined the design of our Space-as-a-Service offering, applying service best practice and holding design discussions with the European Space Agency. I am proud to be leading the development and implementation of our Space-as-a-Service offering as it provides an increasingly diverse range of customers with access to space applications, assisting with the democratisation of space. I have also started the first In-Space employee focus group on Sustainability – with a view to sharing practical ideas for more sustainable living and influencing In-Space environmental policy.

I am an enthusiastic advocate of space, science, engineering, and innovation and the opportunities, benefits, and inspiration they deliver.

I hold a PhD in Spacecraft Systems Engineering and a Masters in Astronautics and Spacecraft Engineering from Cranfield University and a BSc (Hons) in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Leeds.

I have 21 years of experience working in the space industry on over 20 space missions, numerous developments and studies across commercial, agency, national and international projects. This has required that I develop strong communication skills and a flexible, team-oriented work ethic.

I worked for 20 years at Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd in a variety of technical, strategic and leadership roles, including mission design, spacecraft systems engineering, space environment analysis, and new programme development. As Exploration Missions Lead, I played a pivotal role in the strategic and technical development of the Lunar Pathfinder Programme

In 2019, I joined In-Space Missions as Principal Systems Engineer and Head of Outreach. I have driven our rapidly expanding company to gain ISO-9001 accreditation, led the final test phases of the Faraday-1 commercial rideshare nanosatellite and am building the company Outreach and STEAM skills development programme.
