Geologist/Geotechnical Engineer


Geologist/Geotechnical Engineer

I'm all about what's under your feet. The earth! My job is to study the composition, structure and other physical attributes under the ground. I make sure when we build renewable energy sites, particularly the big wind turbines, we're on stable ground. No one wants a turbine disappearing into a sink hole!
