What does your job involve? My job is to invent things! And how cool is that? In order to protect all the inventions my colleagues and I create, we register patents. Patents serve to give BT the right to be only one to use our inventions, and it also names the creators, giving us the due credit for the work!
How did you get into your current role? I made a summer placement in between my second and third year at Uni. After my graduation, I re-joined BT as a Graduate Researcher - I guess they liked me! I've now been working for BT for almost three years.
What did you want to be when you were younger? I wanted to become an airline pilot, however my colour blindness impeded me to train to become one! Since then, I fell in love with Engineering and inventing. And I can't say I regret the choice I made!
What do you do outside work? I like playing video games, while at home; and travelling, when on holiday. I have travelled to over 40 countries in 5 continents.
