Connect with me

I joined the University of Westminster in 2001 after a career at a senior level in architectural practice. Prior to joining the University I specialised in strategic design and project management consultancy for a range of international companies and professional clients.

I welcomed the opportunity to teach aspects of practice to the next generation of architects and since joining the University I have continued to participate in the development of the architectural education, to carry out research in architectural practice and to write.

I am responsible for supervising the teaching and delivery of Professional Studies across all the courses in the Department of Architecture.

I am the course leader for the RIBA Part 3 Diploma in Professional Practice in Architecture, a postgraduate course leading to professional registration, and I also teach on the RIBA Part 2 Graduate Diploma in Architecture.

I have a research interest in dispute resolution in the construction industry and the use of non-adversarial methods such as dispute boards and mediation.

I am currently supervising a PhD on the use of Dispute Boards in international construction disputes

External activities

I am currently an External Examiner at Birmingham City University and I am also a Professional Examiner for the RIBA Part 3 examination.

I have been a member of the RIBA group re-drafting the RIBA Part 3 Criteria and Regulations.

I am an expert member of the ARB Professional Conduct Committee where I sit on ARB disciplinary tribunals and give advice about architectural practice.
