Research summary

My research interests lie within the construction industry, and I am the Principal Investigator of the Transforming Construction Network Plus (N+), which is funded from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. I am familiar with manufacturing, construction, and service firms and their operating practices, and am increasingly involved in projects focusing on digital construction and industry transformation. I have published over 150 papers, secured over £10m of funding (from research councils and industry) and supervised more than 20 doctoral students to completion. In so doing I have attended to research spanning strategy, procurement, standards, values, and accounting for sustainability. Many of my research projects have been supported by industrial partners, including global materials companies and consultancies. My leadership in research and enterprise is extensive, having previously been a Director of an EPSRC CDT (the Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering), and an Associate Dean for Enterprise.

In the School, I am module leader for BCPM0045 The Construction Firm, which is an optional module for our postgraduate taught students.
