Profile

I have taught at the University of Sheffield since 2014 and currently lead Year One. Prior to joining the University of Sheffield, I was involved with establishing and teaching on the architectural design course at the Hong Kong Design Institute.

I am also a practising architect and a director at CW2/Architects. Our background is in the design of bespoke dwellings, social housing, art galleries and educational buildings.

I previously worked as Project Architect at Alison Brooks Architects on the Stirling Prize nominated housing development at Newhall. I have also spent periods of time working for DSDHA, London and Studio Shanghai.

Research interests

My research interest is in the spatial configurations of East and West learning environments and their relationship to pedagogy and I presented a paper at the Sino-UK Architecture Symposium at Sheffield University in 2014
