- Experience with Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
- Programming in C++, C, Visual Basic (and BASIC).
- Scripting in bash, Windows shell, perl, and Python.
- Basic experience of HTML and CSS.
- Modelling using the radiation transport codes MCNP and Geant4 as well as SRIM/TRIM.
- Use of the theoretical nuclear physics code TWOFNR, in order to produce comparisons with experimental data.
- Use of the Office suite, for data analysis (Excel), writing (Word), and presentations (Powerpoint). I also have experience with the Apple software Keynote, for presentations, and the type-setting software LaTeX, which I used to write my PhD thesis and papers, as well as using LaTeX and Beamer to produce posters and presentations.
- Production of publication-quality figures using Grace and Gnuplot.
- Experience working in IT support; fixing hardware and software issues, building computer systems, and sourcing quotes for new technical equipment.
- Organising a Christmas meal for a group of academics at short notice, while also writing my PhD thesis and a research paper.
- Organising nuclear physics group meetings, including internal and external speakers, and a tour of a nearby facility.
- Organising my own travel and accommodation for research conferences and experiments.
- Being part of a society committee.
- Being on the Student-Staff liaison committee, as an undergraduate.
- Certifications in PRINCE2 project management (Foundation and Practitioner).
- Contributing to outreach events.
- Presenting short lectures on introductions to radiation physics, Monte Carlo methods, MCNP and Geant4 to industry collaborators.
- Helping undergraduate students with summer projects, on modelling of a detection system and naturally occurring radiation.
- Working as a Student Teaching Assistant in undergraduate- and MSc-level teaching laboratories.
- Helping MSc students with a short project, characterising a detector.
- Voluntary work helping in lessons at the local High School, while I was doing my A Levels.
- Presenting my work at national and international physics conferences, both in posters and talks.
- Producing and presenting a poster to non-scientists at the University of Surrey’s Post-Graduate Research conference (2012 and 2014).
- Working as part of large collaborations, helping to ensure communication between shifts occurs; passing on comments and solutions to problems.
- Writing scientific papers for peer-reviewed journals.
- As part of several large multi-institution, international collaborations, taking shifts to help to ensure the safe running of experiments.
- Leading a small group of students on a night shift, ensuring the safe running of an experiment between midnight and 8 am.
- Helping to assemble an array of detectors, including the structural components and electronics.
- Working with collaborators in industry, in order to ensure project goals are both relevant to commercial aims, and delivered on time.
