      I think it’s engrained in engineers to always want to improve things. For me it’s about getting the underwater robots to go deeper, do more things they were never designed to and do them in a more efficient way. We’re always aiming to solve a problem…and there’s always lots of ways to do that which is what makes engineering so interesting!

      When it comes to my work, I want to make people’s lives better, facilitating their work.

      Personally, I would like to get my PhD and maybe have a managerial position at some point. But as long as I enjoy the work I do I actually have achieved what I wanted. 🙂
