William Mooney

Technical Assistant

Will joined the Engineering and Tech teams at Carpmaels & Ransford in 2018, having obtained a first class Masters degree in Physics from the University of Oxford. He specialised in Astrophysics and Theoretical physics.

Will’s final year project was focused on gravitational lensing, and involved running simulations to determine whether the size magnification effect of lensing has a significant effect on measurements of the shape distortion also caused by lensing. The purpose of this was to advise physicists preparing the 2020 Euclid space mission of whether they would need to compensate for the size magnification effect in their calculations. He taught himself to code python for the project.

When not at work, Will enjoys playing as much sport as he can, predominantly hockey and running. He has run one marathon, is a keen skier, and is a qualified advanced open water diver.
