Personal profile


I am based at the Ayr campus in the Integrated Land Management Department. My teaching subjects are agricultural and industrial building design and construction and low energy, low carbon buildings, being especially interested in passivhaus construction becoming the new standard for all buildings. My teaching goals are focussed on a strongly held view that there is a great career ahead for graduates from SRUC’s technology programmes, who will be the professional generation who will reduce the very significant built environment impacts on global climate change.

In addition to my teaching work, I am a member of the Energy Agency Board in Ayrshire, have presented conference papers in the UK and overseas and am regularly invited to review journal papers and textbooks in built environment subject areas. I am also a principal examiner in construction and built environment subjects for City and Guilds in London.
