Favourite thing to do in my job: Working with some really clever people
Systems Engineer and Project Manager from Edinburgh.
I live in Edinburgh with my partner and our two children, who are 7 and 4.
In my spare time I coach rowing with Heriot Watt University Rowing Club and am the Team Manager for the Scotland Rowing Team.
I am a fan of the Scotland Football and Rugby Teams 🏴
I help design robots that are used to build cars and aeroplanes.
I work as part research and development team.
We design and build probes that are used on co-ordinate measurement machines (CMMs). CMMs are used to measure components that are then used to build things like cars or jet engines where the parts need to manufactured very accurately. These probes can measure the size and shape of objects by touching them or by using cameras.
My job is as a Systems Engineer and Project Manager. This means that I am responsible for ensuring that all the different parts of probes work together including the electronics, mechanics and software.
I also have to ensure that everyone working on creating the probe are working efficiently and that the probes are safe to use.
What I'd do with the money
I'd like to fund an activity that combines engineering and sport....maybe with an Olympic theme! ◯◯◯◯◯
