Biography

In October 2008 she took up a permanent role as Track Quality Engineer for the Jubilee Line. This involves assuring the quality of the track for daily traffic. Her role involves planning and co-ordinating track work, track design and the management of track innovation projects.

Sharon enjoys getting involved in activities with the IMechE, LEP and STEMNet as a Science and Engineering Ambassador. She is currently on the IMechE’s Young Members Railway Committee which involves organising seminars and lectures for young engineers. Sharon has worked with the LEP and Tube Lines to help organise engineering workshops for school students. These workshops give students an idea of the kind of projects engineers get involved with.

As a Science and Engineering Ambassador she has the opportunity to visit schools and work with students on engineering projects and explain to them what her work as an engineer involves. Being able to work with young people has been a highlight of her career and she looks forward to this year’s upcoming school projects.
