The world economy is driven by science, technology, engineering and manufacturing – it’s here where you can make a difference to the world, which is why I joined the AWE engineering graduate programme.
I started as an Analytical chemist, with a number responsibilities in the materials and environmental areas. I have gained a variety of valuable skills, along with the opportunity to move within the business.
I work on assessing and developing dispersion models, which is the mathematical simulation of emissions as they are transported throughout the atmosphere- think about the spread of smoke coming from a chimney.
I create dynamic models of systems and improve the modelling tools and techniques we use. The great thing about AWE is the flexibility, you are able to move around and try different things.
