I am so honoured to be the 2021 recipient of the Engineers Australia Rod McGee medal. This process allowed me to learn about Dr Rod McGee, one of the great engineers of our time, and the impact he made on the industry. It also encouraged me to reflect on the potential impact of my own career and how I can best help society through engineering.
