I'm NCE'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 NCE's coverage around the future challenges facing the industry and the subsequent changes to the roles of engineers. I've worked for NCE and its sister magazine Ground Engineering for over seven years and have been fortunate to cover national and international stories on the full range of engineering issues from disasters through to epic projects.
