I’m New Civil Engineer’s features editor and I write and commission content for the brand’s print magazine, website and app. I’m most interested in covering innovative and technically challenging infrastructure projects – both here in the UK, and abroad – and enjoy writing in-depth analysis pieces about the politics of infrastructure.
If you are an engineer or contractor with an interesting project, or a supplier with a new technology, please get in touch. Freelance commissions and ideas also welcome.
