“Please contact me via email for an appointment”


I joined the University of Salford in 2001 working as a Research Assistant on the BEQUEST project, working subsequently on the EU funded Intelcity and INTELCITIES projects developing an IT platform for integrating e-government services delivered in a number of case study cities in Europe.

Between 2002 and 2005 I was a researcher on the From 3D to nD Modelling project and completed my doctoral research on this subject focussing on the collaboration impacts of using multidisciplinary modelling in construction.

I became an academic member of staff in 2007 lecturing in team work and management at undergraduate and postgraduate level and leading the user testing research on the SURegen project developing an on-line decision-support tool for regeneration practitioners.  I have been investigating the use of simulation and modelling technologies for planning the whole healthcare system as a member of the HaCIRIC research team since 2011.


I currently teach construction management across a number of undergraduate programmes and postgraduate modules with a particular academic interest in team work and collaboration in the construction industry using ICTs such as Building Information Modelling (BIM).  I also supervise postgraduate students.

Research Interests

My research interest is focussed upon the development, user testing and application of information communication technologies, and their use for enhancing collaboration and decision-making for the built environment (nD modelling and BIM; construction, healthcare and local government sectors.
