I joined Oxford Brookes in December 2016 as a full time Senior Lecturer in Construction, having previously taught architecture and engineering at Leicester DMU, Central St Martins UAL and Southampton University.  Prior to becoming an academic, I  worked as a structural engineer for 20 years at Ove Arup and Buro Happold.  I completed an Engineering Doctorate at Loughborough University in 2016.

Teaching and supervision


Modules taught

I teach undergraduate students in Construction Management and Quantity Surveying. I tend to cover the courses involved with Design and Construction issues.

I am also the Subject Coordinator for MSc Construction Courses.


My area of research is Advanced Construction Methods in the context of design practice.  I am interested in the opportunities presented for designers to work more closely with manufacturers in the design, prototyping and development of construction solutions.
