As New Civil Engineer’s features editor my role is to develop and guide our publication’s feature pieces, working both in print and online.
With five years of experience reporting for newspapers in rural Australia, I come from a world of lift-span bridges, paddle steamers and gravel airstrips. So I feel right at home in the multi-billion-pound world of UK civil engineering.
In such an exciting and important industry, I’ll be keen to take on in-depth and technical coverage, while also making sure our content is presented in an attractive and accessible format.

Mabey | Digital engineeringSubscription
Whether monitoring an existing asset or constructing a new one, today’s engineers need access to better, more reliable information – and it must be in real time. With fast advancing technology making monitoring simpler and more cost effective, building this into works is now a “must have” rather than a “nice to have”.
