After completing a degree in geodesy (fancy word for surveying?), I found myself working in terrestrial gravimetry. This is the determination of the gravity field by measurements on the surface of the Earth, although some might argue, I drop stuff to see if gravity is still working.
I am currently working on
finding more sophisticated ways to drop stuff to see if gravity is still working the improvement of gravimetric methods and sensors which are used in geodesy and related fields.
