About our speaker


Dr Burke has spent more than 25 years in the Engineering and Construction Industry with major contractors moving through a variety of roles from site engineer, executive manager to managing Director of many organisations.  She is an internationally acknowledged researcher, with a PhD in risk management and value for money on major infrastructure project. 

Her passion to give back to the industry has lead the creation of Engineering Consultancy and Education firms, Exner Group and Karsta in the Middle East, in the position of Managing Director. Dr Burke was also the former National Director of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), with a focus on building skills through education for members in the industry.

She has since been appointed a Director or VicTrack and Victorian Chief Engineer.

Her appointment as the first Victorian Chief Engineer will allow her to provide expert advice to the Government on major project design and engineering, including the Metro Tunnel and level crossing removals.  Dr Burke will also help the government establish a registration system for engineers ensuring the industry is properly regulated for safety compliance and competency.
