Elevating South Australia's Innovative Women

Liz Hobart

Senior Water Engineer, Parsons Brinckerhoff: WSP

Liz is a Senior Water Engineer with WSP, Parsons Brinckerhoff. She specialises in hydraulic and surge analysis of water and wastewater pipelines, and has worked on projects large and small across Australia. She was lucky enough to be able to present a paper about her work at an International Conference on Pressure Surges in Lisbon, Portugal – definitely a highlight for a keen traveller!

Liz “fell into” engineering after feeling bored in her first year of a general science degree, and hasn’t looked back. Her honours project considered factors which influenced women to enter and complete engineering studies, and she has always felt it important to support and encourage females in STEM areas.
