How might clients describe you? Thoughtful, caring and responsive.
What inspires you? A project that is technically challenging and has a social impact. The Egypt groundwater lowering projects have been highly inspiring as I have a great interest in classical art and antiquities. Further inspiration came after having the opportunity to visit the antiquity sites for which the groundwater models were developed.
