Specialist electronics design and development

I am a Senior Development Engineer working in the Applied Technologies group. My expertise is in electronics design and development, covering areas such as analogue, digital, switch-mode power, and microcontrollers. I am proficient in design fault analysis, utilising my skills to ensure robust and reliable engineering solutions. 

Throughout my tenure at Callaghan Innovation (including its predecessor organisations DSIR & IRL), I have worked on a diverse range of multidisciplinary engineering projects, each unique and challenging, such as a vehicle dynamometer controller, tourist commentary systems, and sonar transmitters.
