Data, Analysis and Modelling Specialist

About Me

A highly skilled and multidisciplinary aeronautical engineer and data specialist with extensive experience of dealing with complex systems, processes and data.

With a rare emotional intelligence used to support and coach my team in a matrix environment, I have the ability to engage and energise a team to deliver and develop. 

A strategic thinker, who can dive into the detail whilst retaining the wider vision, used to working in a global and multicultural environment. I am now looking for a change in direction to broaden my experience through the use of digital and data solutions to help bring understanding of complex systems.
