Robin Phillips

Robin studied mathematics at Bristol University (UK) and astrophysics at the University of Kent (UK) before working as an instrument support scientist at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Then he moved to the University of Lethbridge in Alberta (Canada) where he worked as a project manager in an instrumentation group, designing and deploying atmospheric measurement equipment for telescope sites. These remotely controlled instruments used maxon motors for their mechanisms, a link which work ultimately led him to his current position as Aerospace project manager at maxon motor
