Concerns over climate change have raised the need for zero energy buildings as well as for more livable cities.

As an architect and academic, I research technologies and processes for designs that can improve the quality of spaces as well as the energy performance of buildings. Having worked internationally on creative projects and produced artefacts which integrated photovoltaics, smart materials, and reused components, I am interested in the communicative potential of facade technologies for zero energy buildings and completed an interdisciplinary Ph.D. research on the design of solar architectural skins.
Besides teaching in UK universities, I have delivered lectures, talks and workshops in Europe, in the United States and in Qatar, and always welcome opportunities for cross-boundary collaboration.
