Summary

I am a Chartered Civil Engineer with more than 30years of professional experience, split almost equally between working in industry and working in academia. My industry career started in the UK water industry, but included projects in the highways and housing sectors. I then ventured overseas and engaged in a number of infrastructure development and post-disaster recovery projects in Africa, the Caribbean and Eastern Mediterranean regions. I have worked at a variety of levels, often managing interdisciplinary design and construction teams. My first academic post was at Coventry University, where I was engaged to teach engineering principles to Disaster Management students. I then moved to the University of Plymouth, where I taught construction and disaster management principles to engineering students. I completed my PhD in 2014, which explored the potential value of social capital as means to enhance community resilience to flood risk. My wider research has focussed on a range of issues related disaster and construction management. I have led several educational projects with strong industry-academia collaborative elements and my academic roles have included admissions and programme management.

Since joining the team at Brunel University, I have taken on the role of Director for Flood and Coastal Engineering programmes. This a suite of three programme (MSc, BSc and FdSc) all of which are sponsored by the Environment Agency and are co-delivered by the University and HR Wallingford.
