Research and expertise

I am a Doctoral Researcher at Loughborough University, who specialises in low-carbon glazing techniques, including Water-filled glass. I conduct research primarily within this area, with a particular focus on the glazing of the future in the built environment. I hold an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering (MEng) from Loughborough University, and have previous research experience as an undergraduate researcher.

Current research activity

  • Thermal comfort of standard and advanced glazed building envelopes
  • Whole life-cycle analysis of standard, advanced, and water-filled glass building envelopes
  • Quantifying the effects of a fluid layer on the structural properties of Insulated Glass Units (IGUs)
