I'm New Civil Engineer's Deputy Editor and love nothing more than hearing all the gossip, news and views from the industry's key figures - so do get in touch if there's a burning issue you want to see covered

I am also in the process of refocusing New Civil Engineer's coverage around the future challenges facing the industry and the subsequent changes to the roles of engineers.

I've worked for New Civil Engineer and its sister magazine Ground Engineering since 2007 and have been fortunate to cover national and international stories on the full range of engineering issues from disasters through to epic projects.
