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, she has focused on offshore engineering topics, completing two separate dissertations relating to optimisation of offshore wind farm layouts and critically analysing factors of safety against punch-through for spudcan foundations.
At Ternan, Phoebe has worked on a variety of projects that include geotechnical data interpretation, windfarm ground modelling, pipeline and cable burial risk assessments, pile driveability studies and foundation design. She has started her journey to Chartership with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and holds the role of Environmental Champion to help introduce company objectives in compliance with ISO 14001.
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.
