My real life job is as journalist using my engineering background to write for specialist publications. That means I tend to write about technical subjects as they become newsworthy. For example:
- Fracking failure for Cameron as shale stays in the ground
- Prepare for progress on Northern Powerhouse
- Metro schemes drive tunnelling boom
- National Women in Engineering Day: no room for sexist traditions in modern engineering
Sometimes I even get to do cool stuff like ride on cranes and tunnel boring machines.
You can read my work blog here. I don’t write on it nearly as much as I should so for a more accurate update on my work in this area follow me on Twitter @bernaballantyne
