Inventor, scientist, and electronics designer
Electrical engineer, inventor, and robot designer. Working on radiation sensors and anything radioactive at Bristol University.
I work on specialised sensors that can detect radioactive materials and other sources of radiation, which are needed in nuclear reactors, hospitals, and space exploration missions..
My Typical Day: I'm often working from home because of Covid-19, so my day starts generally between 8 and 9 in the morning. I have a lab at home, where I design innovative electronic circuits, prototype them, then assemble them on circuit boards for testing and integration in robots. Most of the time is spent at a computer to simulate complex circuits or designing circuit boards using advanced CAD software.
What I'd do with the money
Buy Arduinos and organise workshops to teach how to use them to build robots or other cool things!
