Before being an engineer I have worked in cafes serving food and drinks
Engineer during the working day, but outside of work I love to bake or go for a long hike
I live alone just outside of Bristol. I really like cooking and experimenting with new flavours in the kitchen but prefer to bake sweet treats. Before Covid I really liked playing squash and swimming and hope to get back into these in the future.
I design and create equipment to clean old nuclear sites (the places that used to generate electricity using nuclear material) to make sure they're clean and safe for the future.
My Typical Day: I split my week by half working from my house and the other half working on site. My work day starts at 8am. When I work from home I start with some video calls with my team to go over what we want to accomplish in the day. I use the time drawing 3D models on my computer. I draw things that will help my team clean clean the nuclear site. I use maths and calculations to help me decide how to best draw things. When I am on site I spend some time in my office creating designs and the rest of the time building and testing what I have designed. The building and testing are the bits that I find the most fun.
What I'd do with the money
To spend on materials to be used in hands on activities in the classroom. These activities are to show everyone that engineering is all around us, even when we don't see it!
