Isabelle Robinson is a freelance writer for a variety of AZoNetwork sites and is based in the UK. Originally from Riddlesden, North Yorkshire, Isabelle now resides in the city of Manchester. She graduated from Heriot-Watt University in 2015 with a BEng (Hons) degree in Civil Engineering. She also recently achieved an MSc degree, with merit, in Structural Engineering at the University of Salford.

Isabelle has a high understanding of key structural engineering topics including structural design, finite element analysis, bridge engineering, and seismic design. Her dissertation is entitled ‘Seismic Response Mitigation Using Passive Stiffness Alteration Devices’ and has proved to be an interesting topic of research.

Prior to this, Isabelle worked as part of the bridge analysis team for Opus International Consultants Ltd, inspecting and assessing on track assets for a large UK based rail company. In addition, she completed PTS, BCMI, and first aid training courses and is CSCS certified. Throughout her time here, Isabelle developed her technical and writing skills which aided her through university.

Isabelle has also started her journey to chartership as a Graduate Member of the Institute of Civil Engineers (GMICE), as well as being a Graduate Member of the Institute of Structural Engineering (GMIStructE) and actively attends a variety of CPD events; including “lunch-and-learn” webinars and live seminars hosted around the city. Her goal is to become a fully Chartered Engineer.

During her time at Heriot-Watt University, Isabelle completed and presented a dissertation on the storage-yield relationship of water supply reservoirs, including a review of existing works of literature and the effects of the coefficient of variation of annual runoff on the storage yield function.

She is an alumni of the Arkwright Scholarship Programme and takes great pride in encouraging young people to take an interest in STEM related subjects. Aside from engineering, Isabelle has a particular interest in engineered materials, 3D-printing, drones, green technology, and artificial intelligence. She is very creative and enjoys learning about new topics. She also has a passion for innovative solutions and a personal interest in sustainability and the environment
