Dr Harry Warring

When Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket made it to space on 25 May 20017 it also made it into headlines all around the world. The successful launch was the first orbital-class rocket launched from a private launch site in the world. 

 

Rocket Lab has also launched the career of MacDiarmid Alumni Harry Warring, who now works as Vehicle Test Engineer at Rocket Lab Ltd.

“I submitted my thesis on a Thursday, interviewed for Rocket Lab on the Friday and started work a week later.  It’s been a fun journey to see the rocket built and flown.”

 

Dr Warring studied with MacDiarmid PI Associate Professor Ben Ruck from 2010-2012 as a research assistant prior to doing his PhD with Associate Professor Ruck from 2013 to 2016.
