As a part time lecturer, I joined the Professional Practice teaching team at the School of Architecture in September 2009, combining teaching with running my own practice.

My time at university is split between running our Part 3 course, undergraduate studio tutoring, and supporting our graduates in practice. In addition, I am a professional examiner for the Part 3 courses at the University of Westminster, the University of Greenwich and Oxford Brookes University.

With a background in both commercial and private practice, I have a particular interest in live projects and the unique learning and teaching opportunities they provide.
