Personal profile

Research expertise

I am currently developing a rural house site near Cawdor to provide a single dwelling which will encompass ‘off-grid’ systems such as private fresh water supply, wastewater drainage, electricity microgeneration with battery storage, and satellite communications for telephone and broadband.  I propose to analyse the cost, timescale and regulatory compliance required to install, operate, monitor and maintain these systems over long term usage throughout the seasons.

 My initial research phase is a scoping study to identify areas for future in-depth research, and to identify potential funding streams for these activities.

Teaching expertise

My specialism is in environmental issues and sustainable construction with a background in the design and construction of buildings which consider thermal perfomance, embodied energy and use of local materials.
