Prior to starting at Loughborough university in 2013 my working career has taken me from testing in a quarry with Tarmac to testing and monitoring ground works in the UK and Ireland on a variety of projects from everyday roads, embankments, dams housing and industrial units to bespoke football stadium, airports and power stations.
