I work with national and international companies, local authorities and Universities in climate change mitigation and adaptation, resource, environmental and management. For over 10 years I worked in consultancies and manufacturing businesses (as a Director) and still provide strategic guidance at board level.
I now research approaches in modelling resource flows, life cycle assessment, industrial ecology and standardised systems for urban environments and cities.

I graduated in Germany as a fully qualified Civil Engineer and completed a PhD in Environmental Management and Business Psychology (CEG and the School of Biology and Psychology) at Newcastle University in 2006. I left the University and after a few years in industry rejoined the Department as a researcher in 2011.

I develop new approaches to model and manage climate change adaptation, mitigation, natural resources and material flows using e.g. life cycle assessment, industrial ecology and standardised systems e.g. 9001, 18001 and 14001 in urban environments.

I aim to provide researchers and decision makers a system-scale understanding of the inter-relationships between resource mapping and resource use in cities. For this I consider climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and technologies in the built environment.

My research, consultancy and publications feed directly into my teaching bringing expertise into the classroom. I lead modules, teach and conduct the associated administration of Higher Education (HE) Programs for UG, PG and doctoral students. I research and develop new theories for urban areas (cities) and climate change adaptation and mitigation by considering resource models, life cycle assessment and costing, industrial ecology principles and standardised management systems.

Research Interests
