Biography

I am a Lecturer (Teaching) in Architectural History and Theory at UCL Bartlett School of Architecture and a Visiting Lecturer in Critical and Historical Studies at Royal College of Art. I am also a practising architect (ARB registered) and co-founder of Incandescent Square, an interdisciplinary platform for research and design with interests spanning from architecture and urbanism to critical heritage and curating (https://incandescentsquare.com/). 

I have previously lectured at Coventry University and University of Suffolk. I am a founding member of the Institute of Psychoanalytic Studies in Architecture (IPSA) (http://art3idea.psu.edu/ipsa/). In 2020, I was appointed to act as the external examiner for MArch Architecture and Urban Design course at Metropolitan College Athens / Oxford Brookes University. I studied architecture in the UK (University of Westminster & Kingston University). I also hold an MA and a PhD in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths University of London.

Research Summary

My research is best positioned at the intersection of architecture, critical heritage studies and psychoanalysis, and engages critically and methodologically with the element of fire. My monograph was published in June 2019 by UCL Press and is titled Architecture and Fire, A Psychoanalytic Approach to Conservation. This book offers a radical reconceptualisation of architectural conservation through Freudian psychoanalysis, which emerges through the study of the intimate relationship between architecture and fire. This book has a twofold function. On the one hand, it puts forward a conservation model that relies on psychoanalytic principles, encourages public participation and promotes controlled destruction as part of its agenda. On the other hand, it looks into the relationship between ‘architecture and fire’, a research area that is somehow underexplored but has sadly received huge attention in recent years, particularly in the aftermath of tragic events that have scarred modern history.

I am an active researcher producing research individually and collaboratively, through publications, exhibitions and public events. I recently received two seed funding grants from The British Academy for collaborative research workshops with other academics from the UK and Brazil. I have also developed a research project proposal in collaboration with Professor Filipe Coutinho Quaresma  from Laboratório Experimental de Arquitetura e Urbanismo, Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal (http://leau.ulusofona.pt/projects/suffolk-lisboa-complex-shore-terrain/).


I have engaged with a number of art projects both in the UK and abroad, and exhibited in notable architectural and art events, such as the 3rd Lisbon Architecture Triennale ‘Close, Closer’ with a participatory Super 8 film and sound installation; a group exhibition in the New Digital Art Biennale in Brazil; the Digital Research in the Humanities and Arts 2014 in Greenwich Maritime with a video installation. In 2018, I led a team that won a Historic England design competition entitled ‘Immortalised: A Design Competition’. 

Teaching Summary

At UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, I teach History and Theory in all three years of the BSc Architecture programme. I also supervise dissertations in the MA Architectural History and MArch Architecture programmes. In 2020, I became the Departmental Tutor of the MArch Urban Design programme and the Elective Module Coordinator in MEng Engineering and Architectural Design. 


As a Visiting Lecturer in Critical and Historical Studies (School of Architecture) at Royal College of Art, I supervise MA dissertations. 


Between 2016-19, I was a Lecturer in Architecture at University of Suffolk teaching both Theory and Design.

At Coventry University, I taught Design (MArch Architecture) and Contextual Studies (BA Architecture)
