      My PhD is definitely 1 long, challenging project! This was 4 years of research and writing which I’m now close to finishing so yes, hopefully I will succeed!

      Within this long project, there was lots of smaller projects to work on and I think the most challenging part was fixing a reactor. This is a small metal tank which goes to very high temperatures and pressures but often leaked! I had to spend a lot of time fixing it and testing it to make sure it worked but eventually, it did!

      Id say my most challenging project as of yet was broadcasting the UEFA Champions League football final in HDR (high dynamic range- which is essentially better picture quality) . This was as we needed to configure new kit and new technology then hook it up onto the BT Sport App and then test it all within a short amount of time . There was lots of pressure on the team but we managed to complete it successfully and with minimal errors.

      Working on the F-35B has definitely been the most challenging job I’ve had – it’s a very advanced aircraft and has a lot of new technology on it that haven’t been used on aircraft in that way before! The whole team has worked hard to be successful and have delivered aircraft to the RAF and more recently deployed a squadron to Cyprus!
