As the Editor of Ground Engineering I am keen to promote innovation and professionalism in the geotechnics industry, so if you are working on anything ground breaking or unusual, please get in touch. Working on GE is enabling me to combine my two careers - I gained a BEng (hons) in Engineering Geology and Geotechnics at the University of Portsmouth and worked for Peter Brett Associates for a few years before I moved into construction journalism in 2000.
