Senior Lecturer, Course Director MSc Environmental Design and Engineering


Research Interests:


Environmental monitoring, Air pollution, energy use, energy efficiency, occupant behaviour, optimum use of BMS controls, dynamic building simulation, TAS.


Short personal summary statement:


A background in computer systems and electronic engineering, led me into intelligent domestic central heating controls, once in the built environment department of what became University of Westminster, it was a short hop to air pollution monitoring in the streets, at the Bartlett. Continuing experience in monitoring of air pollution, temperature, humidity and energy, led to a lecturer post in the MSc Environmental Design and Engineering course.

I have run the dissertations for this course since 2000 and have supervised a large variety of topics since then. Recent interests are how to help occupants use low energy homes more effectively.
