I am a qualified chartered surveyor and fire safety engineer with over 30 years’ experience. I lead Arup’s Glasgow office, which is home to more than 150 staff working across all aspects of the built environment. I also lead Arup’s UK fire engineering group, which has grown to a team of over 100 fire safety advisors based across 12 UK offices supporting clients in the public and private sectors.

Our team delivers innovative fire consultancy and engineering solutions for clients in the architectural and construction industries in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia. 

Creating safe, flexible spaces which are accessible to everyone – regardless of age, gender or disability – is what drives me. I have a passion for designing inclusive and sustainable buildings that protect people and the environment. With my expertise in fire science, I am committed to helping local communities and working towards shaping a safer, more sustainable, world for everyone.
