Phoebe originally joined Ternan for a summer placement during the third year of her BEng in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Aberdeen. After graduating, she went on to do an MSc in Soil Mechanics and Business Management at Imperial College London where she was sponsored by Ternan Energy.
Whilst studying, Phoebe has focused on offshore engineering topics, completing two separate dissertations related to offshore wind turbine foundation design and spudcan foundations for offshore wind farm jack-up installation vessels.
During her placement at Ternan, she worked with the team on a variety of projects that included geotechnical data interpretation, foundation design and analysis of subsea structures.
Phoebe enjoys the great outdoors and can regularly be found heading for the hills to go mountain biking or skiing. She also enjoys running, road biking and is currently learning to surf. Phoebe volunteers regularly and is a youth ambassador for the Scottish Huntington's Association.
