"I'm working for Fisher & Paykel Healthcare as a Product Development Engineer. I'm doing electronic hardware development on one of our products, specifically doing a lot of circuit design, PCB design and testing. I work in a team with some really smart people, so I continue to learn a lot while working. It's also really interesting to see how the products I help design are manufactured on our production line. I also get to learn a lot about the standards and regulations for designing electrical medical equipment to various countries and what's involved with the regulation process.

Outside of work, I have joined toastmasters (a group to assist with improving public speaking), and my group is entirely young engineers. And I have just finished my first Masters’ degree paper at the University of Auckland. With other Vic Engineering grads, I have set up a blog ( to present some our uni and post-uni projects.
