Q Describe what you do in your current work situation? A Have you ever watched the program "CSI." There are a lot of similarities between that and my job in forensic engineering. The only difference is that I don't investigate crimes and I don't work with the police. I typically work for an attorney who has been hired by an individual or a company. The cases I investigate include: plant explosions and fires where people may be killed or injured; people injured by consumer products which may or may not be defective.
