Personal profile


I am a Lecturer and chartered Architect with over12 years experience in architectural practice.  My research focuses on architecture and planning in post conflict cities, specifically, city planning, architectural design, intergroup contact in divided societies, spatial practices, socio-spatial integration, and community participation in the design process. 


I have worked in high profile architectural practices in London and Belfast where I have designed, led and managed diverse and complex projects across the commercial, education, community sectors.  I remain active in community sector projects in architectural practice which coincides with my research.  I am currently leading a funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership, this partnership involves cross disciplinary research in collaboration with an Architectural practice working on live projects to investigate the design and delivery of shared space in divided communities, with a particular focus on shared education projects.  


I am on the board of the Ministerial Advisory Group for Northern Ireland (MAG), who advise on the implementation of the Policy for Architecture and the Built Environment for Northern Ireland.   I am a member of research group City Reparo which is a multidisciplinary collaboration with strong focus on areas of social, economic and environmental disadvantage and membership drawn from community, public and private sectors.  Alongside this, I am Advanced HE Athena SWAN Reviewer.
