Connect with me

Prior to coming to the University of Westminster I lectured at University College London and was a Research Fellow at the University of Reading. I am a Visiting Fellow at Northumbria University and serve on the executive committee of the Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM).

My main areas of interest are global construction, the economics of the construction industry and policy issues related to construction and urban regeneration.

Construction Economics

Property Economics

My research activities are focused on economic theory applied to the construction industry and, more recently, global construction. I have written papers on the growth and survival of construction firms and have developed a UK benchmark model to estimate the size of construction markets for particular types of building and structures within different countries. I am currently working on a joint paper on US infrastructure markets.

In the past I have undertaken consultancy work for a number of organisations, including the Office of Government Commerce, (now HM Treasury), KPMG and ConstructionSkills.
