Personal profile


As a Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Queen’s University Belfast, an ARB registered architect and a Fellow of the HEA, my responsibilities involve serving as the BSc Programme Director, teaching modules in architectural design and theory, supervising MArch dissertation projects and PhD students, and conducting research in the areas of codesign methods, ecotopian design fictions, urban interventionist practices and climate change adaptation of the built environment. In 2018, I created the award-winning pedagogical experience, Public CoLab. This is an intensive week-long workshop, in January, where small teams of architecture students partner with subject experts and external collaborators to understand a particularly pertinent spatial phenomenon in Northern Ireland. I have been instrumental in helping our school address the climate emergency, by way of creating and facilitating climate literacy training for all of our staff and stage 1 students and by guiding the integration of this agenda into all modules on the BSc programme.

My overall aim, which I seek to achieve through a number of research, education and citizenship activities, is to tackle the ecological crisis through the codesign of place-based, spatial, context specific and environmentally beneficial solutions.
