I am an Electrical engineer, spent 23 years in the Royal Navy Operating and maintaining Nuclear submarine ship and propulsion systems. I then worked in Industry with 17 years in Rolls-Royce where I played a leading role in the development of their predictive maintenance capability. I am now co-founder of a start-up where we automate and optimise engineering processes (such as maintenance management) using engineering data as our primary resource. In a small company you have to turn your hand to do a bit of everything, and I have been learning Python to help prototype new capability. Python has been a revalation, and such a pleasure to learn. It helps get stuff done!
