I have worked as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of The Built Environment since 2008. I have been involved in delivering various construction related modules and have developed two successful courses with Kier Construction Group plc. In the past I have helped organise the Built Environment Breakfast Club creating network opportunities for employers, staff and students whilst creating valuable CPD events.
I enjoy delivering modules that are technically based such as Building Pathology and Construction Technology. As my experience and background is in Building Control I take a keen interest in the implication and enforcement of Building Regulations implications and Health and Safety aspects which both play a major part in construction today.
I also enjoy supervising undergraduate and post graduate dissertations that supports and encourages student’s research.
