Software Engineering 3


As a Control System Engineer, I make sure that all of the control and measurement devices used by ATLAS to accelerate particles, can be controlled by the operators.  This involves a combination of skills Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, IT Systems administrations, and Physics.  This suits me well because I’ve always been interested in making computers have effects in the real world.

In previous roles I have:

  • Lead teams of engineers and technicians in the design and development of hardware, and manufacturing infrastructure of handheld battery testers
  • Project Management of hardware and software
  • Developed software for high speed automated test equipment used in semiconductor manufacturing
  • Developed embedded software for cellular infrastructure
