Kate Downes

After completing a Bachelor of Surveying degree at the University of Otago, New Zealand, Kate moved to Perth commencing work at Fugro in 2015. Kate has completed various jobs in both the role of online surveyor and data processor – working offshore and in Fugro’s data centre. Geophysical surveys, positioning services, and processing multibeam echosounder data have been the more predominant forms of work she has been engaged in.

Highlights of her time at Fugro so far include working on the high-profile Search for MH370 project, working in the North & Baltic Seas for Fugro’s Dutch office, and mapping largely uncharted waters throughout Papua New Guinea.
