Current positions

Senior Lecturer


I joined the University of Salford in January 2010 as a lecturer in the School of the Built Environment. Prior to joining the School, I worked at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow on various NSF funded projects. I completed my PhD from Loughborough University in 2005. At Loughborough University, I gained experience working as a Research Assistant on the EPSRC funded WiSECON project. Also, I played a key role in the development of a Work-based Distance Learning MSc in Construction Management programme at Loughborough University.

Currently I supervise four doctoral students and am involved in the supervision of both undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. I have supervised several research projects to completion, including topics on Computer Integrated Construction Management, Building Information Modelling, Knowledge Management and Integrated Design and Delivery Systems.
