I lead the global Arup Explores programme at Arup, which identifies and analyses major trends impacting the future of the built environment. The Arup Explores programme has previously explored biomimicry for design, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and designing with digital fabrication. 

With a background in architecture, town planning, conservation and computation, I believe that successful design cannot be separated from tools. I joined the Foresight, Research and Innovation team at Arup in 2000 to lead business development of synthetic environments and a global neXt_work community. 

I supervise PhDs in the Computer Science Departments at Imperial College London and University College London, including ‘Computationally unifying urban master planning’ (2009-2013), ‘Management and visualisation of non-linear history of 3D models’ (2011-2015), and ‘Active learning application to the built environment’ (2018-).
