      My day is going good! just about to do some mechanical testing on some samples, and going to have lunch in 30 mins 😛

      My day is going great thank you, I hope yours is too! You’re the first person to ask me 🙂
      I am a researcher working on improving artificial limbs for amputees. My days vary quite a bit, for instance some days I am in the office working on my coding and others (like today) I had a meeting with a company that makes and fits artificial limbs. Each day there’s always something different for me to do to achieve my aim of making artificial limbs more comfortable and fit better to prevent further injury.

      Busy but not too bad thanks.
      How’s yours been?!
      I have been looking at rainfall data over the period of 12 weeks, to try to figure out where issues are occurring with records in sewer flow data, like if there are any pipes being fully loaded and not able to function properly or if there have been areas in the sewer system where there are cracks in pipes which have lead to water coming in during the storms and snow fall.

      My day is going well, a bit delayed in an airport but pretty well. I am a robotics engineer, which means I do a whole load of different engineering combined. A mix of mechanical, electrical, computing with a dash of chemical as well.
