Sensing a challenge

While studying for my undergraduate degree at the University of Nottingham in the UK, I developed a strong interest in condensed-matter physics. This led me to undertake a PhD in semiconductor physics and then, almost before I knew it, I was starting my final year and contemplating what to do next. Although the PhD was a great experience, after many years following an academic path I felt it was time for a change. I started looking for industrial jobs with a focus on engineering and physics, and quickly discovered e2v – a leading design firm of electronic components and subsystems. I applied for the company's annual graduate scheme in 2005 and was delighted to be offered a job working with charge-coupled devices (CCDs).
