      The masters is all about how to provide safe drinking water and sanitation (otherwise known as toilets!) after a disaster. So say there was an earthquake that destroyed a town, it would be about how to put in emergency water and toilets for everyone to stop disease spreading.

      After my time in Costa Rica I am really interested in doing more international work and particularly this type of engineering – it’s very similar to what Ken has done for 40 years and he has been a real inspiration to me!
