Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interests lie within the construction industry. 

I was the Principal Investigator of the Transforming Construction Network Plus (N+), and Co-Investigator of a Research Leaders project on on and offsite construction automation, both funded from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. I am familiar with manufacturing, construction, and service firms and their operating practices, and am increasingly involved in projects focusing on digital construction, automation, and industry transformation. 

I have published over 150 papers, secured over £10m of funding (from research councils and industry) and supervised more than 20 doctoral students to completion. In so doing I have attended to research spanning strategy, procurement, standards, values, and accounting for sustainability. 

I am on the Editorial Board for Buildings and Cities journal, and am a Guest Editor for a forthcoming Special Issue of Construction Management and Economics on ''Transforming Constriction: The multi-scale challenges of changing and innovating in construction'. 

Many of my research projects have been supported by industrial partners, including global materials companies and major consultancy firms. My leadership in research and enterprise is extensive, having previously been a Director of an EPSRC Industrial CDT (the Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering), and an Associate Dean for Enterprise.      

In my role as Vice Dean Research, I was responsible for leading the submission of the Bartlett's submission to REF 2021.

Teaching Summary

My teaching covers aspects of professional and industrial practice, notably within construction. 

This includes aspects of business models, organisational design and ways in which firms are organising to respond to emerging challenges. I have taught on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in UCL, Loughborough and Oxford Brookes University.

In the 22/23 academic year, I am Module Leader for module BCPM007 Managing Professional Practice in Construction, and am the Chair of the Industry Advisory Board for the new MSci Construction Project Management.

I was previously the External Examiner for the MSt in Construction Engineering and MSt in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment, at the University of Cambridge.

I have served on international review panels for departments in ETH Zurich, University of Hong Kong, University of Florida and Georgia Tech, and in 2023,I will chair the review panel for the Faculty of the Built Environment at TU Eindhoven.
