Personal profile

Research interests

Place attachment, historic built environment, value, property management, dark real estate, building adaptation and reuse.


I am Assistant Professor in the Built Environment in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment at Northumbria University.  Prior to joining Northumbria I taught for seven years on Built Environment courses at Sheffield Hallam University. Before joining academia I worked as a commercial surveyor in public and private organisations.

My research explores how practical everyday decisions on the built environment are affected by people’s attachments, views and opinions. I am particularly interested in the resilience of the historic built environment and how the past affects our future decisions. Areas of interest include country houses and medical real estate.
