My research focuses on understanding how mechanical ventilation systems can be designed to improve air quality and human comfort in low-carbon housing in the UK. The PhD is funded by Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship  (KESS2) and European Social Fund (ESF).

My interest in ventilation came from my undergraduate degree in Aeronautical Engineering which I completed at the University of Glasgow in 2015. I did my first master's in Sustainable Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in 2016 and my second masters in Environmental Architecture from The Glasgow School of Art in 2019. 

At the school, I teach Design Studio Year 1 and Architectural Technology Year 2 and 3.
