Peter O'Keeffe Craven 

WISE Research advisor & PPI contributor 

I am a retired Chartered Civil and Structural Engineer. I have been working mainly in Dublin for a firm of consulting engineers. Earlier on in my career I worked in Kenya, Eswatini, Papua New Guinea, and spent a few months working with an NGO in Zaire putting in water supplies to refugee camps during the 1994 Rwanda crisis.

I am married and have three grown up children. In the summer we are not to be found in Dublin but on our sailing boat (a wet caravan) on the west coast of Ireland. I also enjoy hill walking, reading and film.

To keep the brain active I am trying to learn Irish but our plan to spend a few weeks immersed in the language in the Gaeltacht in 2020 were scuppered by Covid 19.
