I am a Partner Architect at a reputable architectural firm. My early career spanned a decade working as Project Architect and Project Manager on commercial, civic, educational, and residential projects for private and corporate clients, as well as government agencies on donor-funded projects, international project collaborations, and infrastructural audits. I additionally volunteered as a guest juror on student design thesis presentations for the Department of Architecture of my alma mater and as Team Mentor in a covid-response design competition.

Having completed a Master of Science degree (with Distinction) in Construction Project Management, at Loughborough University, my current research focuses on assuring information integrity in socio-technical information communication systems in Digital Construction.

I am a PhD researcher investigating human-technology interactions in Digital Construction information communication, its implications for assuring information integrity, and capabilities for optimising digital technology adoption in Digital Construction projects. 

Additionally, I provide learning and teaching support for undergraduate and postgraduate modules in ABCE, as a University Teacher through lecturing, lab tutorials for modules that involve comprehensive use of 2D-5D BIM technologies, guest juror support for part 1 and part 2 design presentations for LuARC, coursework, and exam script marking and invigilation.
