I have excellent numeracy and analytical skills, and extensive experience using the programs Mathcad, Matlab, and the MS Office suite particularly Excel. Much of my course has involved report writing, data analysis, and individual or group presentations.
In both my most recent and undergraduate courses there has been an emphasis on qualitative and quantitative analysis of current and future projects, while always keeping the commercial aspect in mind. My thesis examined reliability and criticality analysis of offshore wind turbines, and compared the impact on O&M costs of direct and indirect wind turbine configurations in an offshore environment. In addition, modules such as, Energy Resource and Policy & Electrical Power Systems have given me a wide-ranging knowledge of the issues facing the renewable energy sector, such as the Electricity Market Reform and the integration of distributed generation into the grid.
My current occupation and past work experience has provided me with a variety of different skills. These include self-motivation; initiative; flexibility; attention to detail, and excellent verbal and written communication skills. They have also given me experience of working on multiple projects, in tandem, while dealing with different types of people and clients in a variety of settings. Much of my current position is discussing with people their opinions on a variety of socio-economic issues including the environment, crime, and public policy. This requires the ability to simplify complex issues and communicate them to people from all walks of life effectively.
I have had a number supervisory and mentoring roles both in the academic and professional environment. In my current occupation I am required to mentor new employees and help them accustom themselves with the new role. I was also elected group leader for a number of University group work projects during both my undergraduate and post graduate studies.
I am a volunteer adult leader with the Woodcraft Folk organisation, which is an outdoor and environmental educational organisation for children and young people. This involves organising and leading activity sessions for an evening while safeguarding the children at all times. Most recently I gave a presentation on renewable energy and organised a practical session constructing small wind turbines from mostly recycled material.
