We are delighted to report that Mrs Diana Thomas-McEwen will join ACORN from 1st September 2019 as principal robotics technician. Diana will be based in Cambridge.
Diana has provided a brief introduction below:
"I'm Diana, the principal technician. I formerly worked in the Dyson Centre for Undergraduate Engineering Design at the university for three years, where I operated, maintained and trained students and staff on a variety of 3D printing devices, as well as laser and plasma cutting, enabling prototype design and manufacture.
Prior to this for six years I worked offshore as a marine biologist and gained practical experience with electrical and mechanical engineering working on research vessels all over the world. I was responsible for operating and maintaining a wide range of complex survey equipment (like deepwater camera systems), leading teams of scientists and training junior staff."
