She has worked on a redesign of a current surveillance radar product that is used in search and rescue helicopters, facilitated the production process by providing analysis on antenna units coming through Leonardo's state of the art testing ranges, and developed applications to aid in the efficient processing of measurement data.
Anna is a keen STEM Ambassador and currently leads the Edinburgh site early careers STEM team, working to promote engineering to the younger generation, developing activity packs and organising events. Anna has volunteered for various organisations with the aim to help inspire and support budding engineers, such as acting as a mentor for Engineering Development Trust (EDT) projects and for UKNEST scholars.
