My vision is to make this world a better place. My mission is that Government, Industry and Society will appreciate the environmental and resource consequences of their actions (or indeed inaction). Having worked in the construction industry and graduated as a fully qualified Civil Engineer in Germany I completed a PhD in Environmental Management and Business Psychology (School of Engineering and the School of Biology and Psychology) at Newcastle University in 2006. After working for more than 8 years as company director, consultant and trainer of business leaders worldwide I re-joined CEG in 2011 as researcher. In 2017 I became a lecturer and was appointed a Senior Lecturer in 2019.

In academia I develop and apply social, engineering and management methodologies to increase the profitability and understanding of industrial and urban processes. My projects have been assessed independently and received highest possible ratings for the transfer of technical and management knowledge. I have designed and delivered training courses and consulted local and multinational companies from the construction to the banking sector. My work enhances the research and training of science, engineering and managerial knowledge as they are directly relevant to businesses and governmental organisations.
