What appeals to you about Electronics?
I have had an interest in electronics since secondary school where my electronics teacher passed on her passion for the subject to the class. The application of electronics in so many aspects of everyday life especially intrigues me and I really enjoy being able to understand how technology and electronics works.
Why did you want a scholarship with Teledyne?
I wanted to work at Teledyne because I was very interested in working with cutting edge electronics and space imaging technology.
What type of work have you been involved with during your placement?
It was incredibly insightful to work at Teledyne, especially as I was able to apply the knowledge I have gained during my degree. In particular, I was based in the electronics testing lab, where I used my experience of practical labs to visually inspect and electrically check that the electronics were correct. I was really glad I was able to use my degree in the workplace as it allowed me to see the applications of my education and put what I have been learning into the context of the workplace.
What are your interests outside of work?
I personally enjoy playing videogames and spending time with my friends but I also volunteer with young people through Scouts. I find it really rewarding being able to see the children grow as people and being able to give to them what I experienced and enjoyed is very fulfilling. I am also a part of the university scout and guide organisation and have taken on a variety of responsibilities ranging from organising social events, taking minutes in committee meetings, and running the whole society as chair.
