Programme Manager @ From January 2014 to Present (1 year 10 months) Technical Manager @ From April 2012 to January 2014 (1 year 10 months) Cambridge, United KingdomProject Manager @ From October 2011 to April 2012 (7 months) Cambridge, United KingdomSenior Engineer @ Technical Lead:
- Part of a global team of moulders, toolmakers and designers which have successfully commissioned four cavity tooling of 16 injection moulded parts in order to be validated and delivered to the Asian moulder. In the role of technical lead on the project tasks included dealing with the tool design review with respect to impact on the DPI design, keeping control of any concessions / tool corrections required, and design updates during the process of tool trials and validation.
- Technically led the design of a syringe dosing control device from idea to working vacuum casting using SLA prototypes to validate the dosing reliability and then onto design for injection moulding.
- Completed many Tolerance Analyses on client products and reviewed colleagues work in this area.
- Completed the detail design of a breath actuated dry powder inhaler including, tolerance analysis, detailed 3D modelling in Pro/Engineer and detailed drawings.
- Sole Mechanical Engineer in a multidisciplinary team designing a detection module for a HPLC machine. This project calls for the collaboration between optics, fluids and electronic engineers.
- Taken the lead role on an FMECA for a complete dry powder inhaler using the in house spreadsheet based system at Cambridge Consultants.
- Contributed to Cambridge Consultants in house documentation database designed for use to track the development of Medical products in accordance with ISO 13485. Specific documentation added includes a validated tool and associated documentation to convert surface finish specifications and various macro enabled spreadsheets for use as product development tools. From January 2009 to October 2011 (2 years 10 months) Engineer @ Product Development:
- Designed test rigs using Pro/Engineer and Solidworks for utilisation at Cambridge Consultants.
- Designed an inhalation cell alongside fluids engineers at Cambridge Consultants for use on a particle analysing apparatus (Malvern Spraytec) which decreases the amount of recirculation of particles seen, when compared to the manufacturers own cell.
- Mathematically modelled an entire dry powder inhaler internal mechanism, including a breath actuated firing mechanism.
- Debugged a complete dry powder inhaler which was partly machined parts and partly prototype tooled parts. Then travelled to Asia to release the design to the manufacturers and assembly operatives. This product successfully completed phase 1 Clinical Trials in 2009.
- Regular contributor to structured in house brainstorms, with a reputation for generating well thought through ideas
-Published an article in Medical Device Technology magazine entitled "Bioresorbable Composite Materials for Orthopaedic Devices".
- Designed the display stands for Cambridge Consultants drug delivery campaign to present work at the DDL yearly conference. From September 2006 to January 2009 (2 years 5 months)
