Fun Fact: When you speak of any country, the first thing that strikes your mind is the bridges! That was my childhood aspiration. I always wanted to be a civil/structural engineer to build/bridge the world. My favorite part about being an engineer is helping people to satisfy their basic essentials- designing/building/testing a dwelling to live in.

Even though I’m coming into forensics from the design consulting world, I’ve been involved in a couple of interesting investigations. The most interesting one involved a structural failure of an auditorium roof (thankfully, it was empty at the time of failure). We found errors across the board from the design to the fabrication and erection of the steel roof trusses, which created a ticking clock that eventually counted down to failure.
