About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Architecture, with expertise in areas of design cognition and creativity, human behaviour and environmental psychology, design theory, mixed methods research and architectural pedagogy. I obtained a doctorate in Architecture from the University of Nottingham, exploring the meaning of design, drawing and concept development in architectural design from the perspective of Distributed Cognition. Following this, I was involved in an EPSRC-funded project investigating the neural and cognitive basis of design ideation (Imagine-D) at the University of Strathclyde, before joining UWE.  I currently act as an editor for the Journal of the Association of Architectural Educators: Charrette and advise on the Higher Education Pedagogies, Policy & Practice (HEPPP) Research Network at UWE Bristol.

As a researcher, I have a broad interest in how people interact with their surrounding environment, be it with other people, their tools or the built environment and welcome collaborative research (including PhD/dissertation supervision) and practice partnership on topics within this area.
