Madeleine Crisp is a System Optimisation Engineer at Anglian Water.  She uses statistical and modelling tools to identify and prioritise solutions, whilst carrying out in depth investigations of the current water network by interrogating and obtaining information from corporate data systems for use in developing solutions.

Madeleine produced an excellent video of ‘A Day in the life of an Engineer.’  Madeleine’s comments from the master judging panel included that her submission was engaging, well thought through and did a fantastic job of really normalising engineering as a profession whilst also bringing up her young family.  Overall, the content was pitched at a very good level to enable good appreciation by all backgrounds.
