    I am a lecturer and fully qualified architect with over 10 years’ experience. I have worked on a varied portfolio of award-winning projects for several high-profile practices throughout the UK and Ireland. I completed my Batchelors in Architecture at the Macintosh School of Architecture, Diploma in Architecture at the Bartlett, UCL and Advanced Diploma in Professional Practice at the RIBA North West.

    Research Interests

    I am currently undertaking an AHRC funded PhD and have an ongoing academic interest in architecture and media. This has led to previous architectural research into a range of subjects, including contemporary electronic music and alchemy. My thesis continues this theme through the use of computer visualization techniques to explore how Soviet Avant-Garde film director, and one-time architecture student, Sergei Eisenstein manipulated space in his early silent films.


    Alongside practice and research, I have also been actively involved in the teaching of architecture throughout my career. In my role as a lecturer at Queens University Belfast I have contributed to several components of the course, including Design Studio, History and Theory and Skills.  I am currently responsible for the delivery of Stage 1 Design Studio and the MArch Technical Dissertation.
