Before coming to Loughborough University to teach I spent 20yrs as Civil Engineering and Surveyor working on major civil engineering contracts in the UK and from 1978 to 1989 working overseas in Pakistan, Caribbean, West Africa and Oman on major construction contracts. Whilst at Loughborough I have been active in developing web-based learning solutions for academia and industry. Since 2015 I have been promoting digital construction through the use of drones for digital imagery and three-dimensional modelling.
