      I guess you mean the other four engineers in this project?

      As I don’t know them personally I can’t say. I think I’m the only one of us working on a project for brain surgery. Otherwise I guess we are as different as any five people you could pick. Even if we have similar jobs I expect we are very different people beyond that. Who knows!?

      Like Matthew said, depends on who you’re talking about. I don’t know the other 4 engineers but I’m the only one working on heart valves. I’m sure we have different hobbies and interests outside of work too

      I’m a pretty short person… I’m sure I’ll win a shortest person competition!

      Everything I design and make is for a single person. I need to take the principles of good design, knowledge of surgical procedures and understanding of manufacturing processes and combine those to come up with a bespoke solution within a matter of a day. This is unlike most engineering specialties who have months or years working on a single project.
