I have a degree in Building Survey and the Environment and a Master’s in Architectural Conservation. My studies have afforded me an in-depth and detailed knowledge of construction and architectural studies, as well as environmental and sustainability issues which are now so important. My research skills are excellent and I have written several dissertations and other significant works. Furthermore, my professional experiences have equipped me with in-depth knowledge of the construction industry and also education. I have worked very closely with students from secondary school level up to university level and, therefore, I have a high level of understanding when it comes to the requirements of such areas of work and, indeed, research.
