I am a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering, a Chartered Civil Engineer recognised by the Engineering Council and a Chartered Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers, United Kingdom (CEng MICE). I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
I teach Engineering Surveying, Structures & Construction Technology A, and Materials & Geology.
I am currently an Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Further Learning Exam Script Marker, a member of The Royal Society’s International Exchanges Panel, and a member of the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Talent Peer Review College.
I am passionate about sustainable materials for road pavements and sustainable and smart drainage systems because of my previous industry and research experience that are in these areas.
My ongoing research focuses on:
1. The reduction of carbon emissions in road construction through the development of a new low-carbon road pavement system in partnership with an industrial partner,
2. Optimisation of sustainable drainage systems for managing quantity and quality of runoff, and
3. Development of a smart drainage management system that enables proactive maintenance instead of current reactive maintenance in partnership with an industrial partner.
In addition, I am the Director of Studies of a fully funded PhD project entitled “Evaluation of Long-term Durability of a Low-Carbon Road Pavement Infrastructure”.
Recently completed projects include the Institution of Structural Engineers funded project entitled “Improving the Durability and Sustainability of Reinforced Concrete using Carbonated Aggregates and BFRP Reinforcement” and a consultancy for Roadfill Limited.

Worked as a Research Associate on a Knowledge Exchange and Embed Partnership (KEEP+) between the University of Greenwich and Roadfill Ltd. to develop a new road surfacing product from synthesis of asphalt concrete and recycled plastics.
Taught and assessed the following Civil and Environmental Engineering modules: CIVI 1125 – Civil Engineering Hydraulics (class: 55 Year-2 BEng & MEng students), CIVI 1131 – Water Engineering (class: 11 Year-3 BEng students), CIVI 1135 – Hydrosystems Engineering & Management and GEEN 1148 – Water & Wastewater Engineering (class: 11 MSc students).
Co-supervised two final year projects with Dr. Cecilia MacLeod, marked Civil Engineering examinations and coursework and graded final year projects (as First Assessor of four projects and Second Assessor of one project), and
Taught and demonstrated Civil Engineering laboratory experiments to undergraduate and postgraduate students and to potential students and their parents on Open Day events.
