Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Associate Professor of Construction Management and Economics for the Faculty of Society & Design. Following some years in architectural and quantity surveying practices I moved to lecturing in quantity surveying and construction. I currently manage the construction management/quantity surveying specialisation at the Faculty of Society & Design. Construction productivity studies International comparisons of construction industry (productivity, cost, management).

My research interests include construction education, international construction costs and environmentally sensitive building design.
