Biography

I’m a Chartered Water and Environmental Manager, experienced researcher and Senior Lecturer.  I’m also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with over ten years’ experience in lecturing. My research focuses on the enhancement of sustainability in the built environment with interests in the fields of sustainability assessment, decision support and public participation in decision making, in particular sustainable service provision.

As co-leader of the Sustainability Assessment, Visualisation and Enhancement (SAVE) group, I lead a multidisciplinary team of researchers with an interest in sustainability assessment, enhancement and communication.  Drawing on established areas of expertise within both the School of Science, Engineering and Technology and the School of Design and Informatics, our work includes developing visualisations and interactive tools to support wiser and inclusive decision-making. 

I have been actively engaged in research over the last 15 years in the field of sustainable decision making, working on a range of projects within local government and the water industry.  I am currently leading an EU funded Sustainable Service Provision project (InForCare), CREW water decision making projects and collaborating with Dundee City Council on a sustainability enhancement framework for the landmark £1 billion transformation of Dundee Waterfront.

I am a Senior Fellow of the HEA and have over 10 years lecturing experience within Abertay. I am Programme Leader of the MSc Construction Management Programme which is an innovative partnership between Abertay and ESCT in Paris.  I lecture on both Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses within the Division of Natural and Built Environment.

 

My teaching is in the areas of:

• Environmental Management
• Sustainability Assessment
• Project Management
• Construction Management

 

My research interests are in the fields of sustainability assessment, decision support and public participation in decision making, in particular, on the enhancement of sustainability in the built and natural environment.  I have been heavily engaged in research over the last 15 years in the field of sustainable decision making on a range of projects within local government and water industry. Alongside other projects, I have been working with Dundee City Council since 2006 to develop and implement sustainability enhancement framework on a 1 billion transformation of Dundee Waterfront.

The research impacts on local government organisations, the public, water companies and their regulators.  The insights that led to the impact include the development and application of an integrated framework for the assessment of sustainability and the communication of the complex data required in this assessment to a wide range of stakeholders.  The application of the research has resulted in changes to public policy and services, raised the awareness and understanding of key stakeholders with a resulting increase in the ability of the stakeholders to make informed decisions and has impacted on policy debate on the environment.

I co-lead the interdisciplinary Sustainability Assessment, Visualisation and Enhancement (SAVE) research group which spans schools within the University. For more information please see the SAVE group web pages http://save.abertay.ac.uk/

Outreach

The SAVE group visualization has been used in a number of public engagement activities such as Dundee Science Festival and Fife Science Festival, Cafe Science and other public arenas.

I lead the Royal Academy of Engieering- Ingenious Public Engagement Grant: On the Right Track - Engineering Education For All project.

Using the exciting backdrop of Dundee City's £1 billion Waterfront Regeneration project, On the Right
Track: Engineering and Education for All, will bring engineers from research, industry and academia
together with school children, teachers and the wider community. Focussing on the rebuilding of
Dundee Railway Station, the project will provide the audience with an opportunity to understand the
science and technology behind engineering the build in a real life context - literally from the ground up.
The programme will provide training for the professional engineers, giving them valuable experience in
public communication of their work.
