Victoria Rastelli reflects on the importance of STEM and having female role models
New Zealand based engineer opens up about her personal experiences in celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
I am an Acoustic Engineer with Norman Disney & Young, A Tetra Tech Company, based in Auckland.
I get involved in construction projects that require acoustics (which is basically noise and/or vibration control) incorporated in the design. My role is to liaise with other consultants to provide efficient, integrated, viable and creative options to provide a design that meets local environmental and building requirements and provides adequate acoustic settings for future users and neighbours. In science and engineering, I can work efficiently in something I really love, in two different languages (Spanish and English) while being recognized by my team and co-workers.
