I am a professionally qualified Chartered Construction Manager (MCIOB) and have a PhD looking into the Strategic Market Decision Making of the UK Construction Materials Sector. I have a vast experience of Built Environment education and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have taught at every level and all subject area’s offered whilst at LJMU and my main teaching specialism’s are in technology, surveying and project management (business and production). I have also worked at De Montfort University and have experience of other HEIs through my role as an External Examiner. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Building accreditation panel which reviews and accredits Construction Management programmes in the UK and internationally. I have experience of research collaboration with industry and academia through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership. I was an Academic Support for the Marketing Associate in a project to help a National Building Services Engineering Consultancy start up a new service and to increase its market share. I have also been involved in successful MPhil/PhD Supervision Teams.

Subject areas of interest:
Construction Education, Project Management including strategic aspects of market analysis, managing people, risk management and change management, Construction Management including technological developments and commercial management.
