I have 14 years experience as a Building Physics Engineer and Chartered Building Services Engineering (MCIBSE) consultant. I have held senior positions in a small and medium multi-disciplinary consultancies, working as a designer in the education and commercial sectors in the UK.
Much of my experience has revolved around the technical design and analysis of the internal environment. All these design decisions have a direct impact on energy use, the way people interact with spaces and the health and wellbeing of building users.
My research interests involve ventilation systems and practices in buildings and how this impacts noise levels, indoor air quality and overheating, whilst also considering how this affects the health and wellbeing of the occupants.
