Project Geotechnical Engineer

“Geosciences has always fascinated me – mixing science and engineering and at the same time incorporating the social, environmental and economic factors that make a difference.”

Geosciences have always fascinated me due to the variety and mixing both science and engineering, whilst also incorporating social, environmental and economic factors. In 2016, I graduated from Camborne School of Mines after finishing my MSc in Applied Geotechnics.

After my Master’s, my first job involved the development and production of a series of mining risk reports and associated risk assessments. Soon after, I joined CampbellReith as a Graduate Geotechnical Engineer at 2018 and as of 2020 hold the role of Project Geotechnical Engineer.

CampbellReith has given me fantastic opportunities to work on a diverse range of challenging and rewarding projects across the UK. I have been involved in desktop reporting, ground investigation design and management, interpretive reporting and associated preliminary design calculations and recommendations. I’m delighted that my work as part of the CampbellReith Geotechnical Team has contributed to the team being nominated for 3 awards at the Ground Engineering Awards 2020.

I enjoy music, gaming and painting miniatures in my spare moments.
