I have over twenty years' of experience in building structures engineering, covering a wide range of projects. From design of new build and refurbishment schemes, to structural assessment and investigations, I have worked on a broad range of projects across the education, commercial, residential, retail, industrial and leisure sectors.

In 2015, I started a part-time post as a Lecturer in Structural Design at the Birmingham School of Architecture and Design, Birmingham City University. My initial focus is to provide Structural Engineering input into the Technology curriculum of both the undergraduate BA (Hons) Architecture and postgraduate M.Arch Architecture, which have RIBA exemption for Part 1 and Part 2 respectively.

As a practising Chartered Structural Engineer, I am looking at how I continue to learn, innovate and collaborate. For example, I am developing interests in sustainable engineering, such as application of Passivhaus standards to new and refurbishment projects, and I am a Certified Passivhaus Designer.
