I am a highly motivated, hands-on engineer with a background in process development, digital circuitry, and instrument firmware. I am currently studying honours physics at UBC, and working at TRIUMF developing a FPGA based trigger systems for dark matter interaction detection. I am seeking opportunities for further experience in a development organization doing either hardware or software.

Development Intern @ Working on the DEAP-3600 triggering system development. The system is an Altera FPGA Stratix IV based trigger system designed to distinguish a dark matter interaction from that of background particle collisions using pulse shape discrimination. This project focuses on speed and efficiency, high efficiency of the system is required to never miss an interaction. Beginning as an undergraduate NSERC project, I am continuing the work as a part of my Honours degree thesis at UBC. From April 2015 to Present (9 months) Development Intern @ Wrote prototype ARM Cortex M0/M3 firmware for built-in self test of a new EOI product, including interrupt handling, startup code, user interface, and an accuracy extension for the PWM output based on delta-sigma techniques with baseband noise shaping.
Designed, laid out, and had printed a digital control board for use in multiple EOI instruments which included a LCD screen, digital data acquisition and digital control components for full interaction with various analog components. From May 2012 to April 2015 (3 years) Research Intern @ Developed a repeatable process for making high aspect ratio TiO2 nanotubes with excellent electrical conductivity by anodizing commercial titanium sheet in dilute hydrofluoric acid and built dye based solar cells. The cells had a low efficiency, but the nanotube process was an advance on the state of the art.
Assisted in laboratory procedures, data taking, and presentations. Fabricated titania nanotubes through various acid bath techniques. Operated scanning electron microscope for imaging sample. From October 2007 to August 2010 (2 years 11 months)
Bachelor of Science (BSc), Honours Physics @ The University of British Columbia From 2013 to 2016 B.S.E./B.S., Engineering Physics: Mechanical Engineering, 3.25/4.0 @ The University of Connecticut From 2011 to 2013 Simon Hobbs is skilled in: Microcontrollers, Public Speaking, C, C++, Matlab, Research, Arduino, Linux, Verilog, Python, FPGA, ARM, Eclipse, Algorithms, Simulations
