I have a background in both Architecture and Landscape Architecture and have worked in architectural practice since graduating in 2001 and also as a founding member of the bureau – design + research since 2002. I am director of the dual Architecture and Landscape Architecture course at undergraduate level and have established the pioneering Dual MArch course in Architecture and Landscape architecture. I am also currently a director with RIBA Award winning practice, Chiles Evans + Care Architects.

The combination of practice and research has enabled me to work on award winning architecture on at both regional and national scales whilst pursuing research interests at national and international levels.
