Casthuri Kamalaraj, ME BE(Civil) BDesArch MIEAust CPEng NER, Northrop Engineers

I have been working in the industry for 6 years now, moving from an undergraduate structural engineer at a smaller consultancy to the current structural engineering role I have at Northrop. I have worked on a variety of projects across residential, commercial, education and public domain, with a strong interest in architecturally bespoke structures due to my background in both architecture and engineering. I have progressed from task based work, to managing projects, managing teams and being a client-facing consultant now with some of my own clients. There have been quite a few challenges encountered along the way, all of which have directly contributed to my development both technically and as a consulting engineer.
