Shuna Beasley - EPSRC Research project

Without the support I received throughout the ten weeks, this research project would not have been such a valuable experience. 

Undertaking an EPSRC Research project was a very exciting prospect as it gave me the opportunity to experience working in research and amongst PhD students.

 

My project was to generate a low costs MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) sensor network for 3D motion tracking. My roles included designing an experimental, instrumented wing model, developing an algorithm to convert inertial data to displacements and validation of the integrated sensor system. The project was summarised by delivering a seminar as part of the department's research seminar series.

 

Throughout my project I came to appreciate the importance of teamwork. The lecturers, researchers and PhD students at Surrey were always on hand to help whenever it was required. Without the support I received throughout the ten weeks, this research project would not have been such a valuable experience. Since then, I have decided to continue onto a research based career path.
