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.

The main features content and special themes for each monthly magazine are also part of my remit so any ideas for showing off your technical or technology excellence (especially through site visit invites) are welcome.

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.
