Favourite thing to do in my job: Making machines work better!
About Me: My name is Ruairi and I am an Irish Engineer who makes machines and robots work better!
I live in Dublin, Ireland with my pet sausage dog, Matilda.
On the weekends I like sailing on boats in the sea and climbing mountains.
I love watching funny videos on YouTube and I read lots of books.
My Work: I use sensors and software to guess when a robot or a machine in a factory may be about to break down. I use the data, from the sensors, to predict and avoid breakdowns which cause companies lots of money!
My Typical Day: I spend a lot of time at my desk and computer, speaking and talking with customers and working with their problems.
What I'd do with the money: I would use the money to help buy a new drone which I am using for a science experiment to deliver medicine to people who are in rural locations alone and away from hospitals.
