Highly motivated and dynamic BEng Civil and Structural Engineering graduate, who demonstrates an innate adaptability to meet client priorities and set goals. With a strong passion for 3D Modelling & CAD, I am a creative innovator who enjoys using my technical mind to design structures, solve problems and shape the world around me. My software experiences include AutoCAD, Revit, Meshmixer and Fusion 360.

With a passion for continually developing my strengths and abilities, I complete tasks to the highest standard, with attention to detail. I am a strong communicator who can foster the key relationships required to achieve success. Having undertaken several summer placements and design experiences, I am equipped with the technical skills required to meet client requirements.


  • Research Student (School of Civil Engineering) University of Leeds · Jun 2018 – Jul 2018 1 mos Leeds, UK - Undertook the Structural Optimisation modelling and Finite Element Analysis testing of the node-connection found in Reticulated Structures using the software tools ABAQUS and Fusion 360 to produce a new breed of bespoke and lightweight node-connections.

    - Carried out the structural modifications needed for 3D-Printing these optimised node-connections using the software tool MeshMixer to prove the applicability of this entire design and manufacturing process.

    - Composed the main Stage C fire strategy report for one of the projects.
  • Research Student (School of Civil Engineering) University of Leeds · Jun 2017 – Jul 2017 1 mos Leeds, UK - Prepared a literature review study and wrote a technical paper on a project aimed at reviewing the applicability of designing and fabricating the node-connections found in Reticulated Structures using Structural Optimisation and Additive Manufacturing (3D-printing) based on the state-of-the-art of these technologies in the industry.


  • The University of Leeds, UK Bachelor of Engineering (BEng), Civil and Structural Engineering, 1st Class Honours (80%, Ranking: 3rd) 2016 – 2019 Activities and Societies: Noticeable Activities: - Undertook two CAD, Structural Optimisation and design for 3D printing placements at my university on a bespoke steel connection design. - Hiking volunteer for two years at my university to promote health awareness amongst the student community. - Worked as a course representative volunteer at my school to improve the student experience for my cohort. A highly motivated and dynamic civil and structural engineering graduate with a strong passion for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and analysis of structures.

Other experience

  • Leadership Training in South Korea (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology - KAIST) A Leadership Training Programme organised by the "Common Purpose" organisation in collaboration with University of Leeds and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) which was held in Daejeon, South Korea. This year's programme was prepared around the theme of understanding the influence of Artificial Intelligence and Technology on Societies. This programme was aimed at developing general leadership skills of a handful of candidates from a highly competitive pool through attending self-development training seminars and visiting headquarters of various multinational companies. This opportunity allowed me to meet with and learn from the leaders of these companies.
