Americas Digital Services Leader
I lead Arup’s Digital Services for the Americas, where we combine our deep knowledge of the built environment with new technologies to delight users and improve our clients’ businesses.
Throughout my career, I have focused on energy modeling, mechanical engineering design for buildings and sustainable consulting. As more data has become available from buildings and the built environment, and as the effects of climate change become clearer, I have become passionate about applying the best in digital technology to increase collaboration and create solutions that support a more sustainable future.
As part of this commitment, I work with leaders across the firm to expand our approach to sustainable development, digital services and skills development. I spent two years as Arup’s Automation Leader, where I worked to apply automation to improve outcomes for our clients and projects through greater consistency, rapid iteration and visualization techniques.
I have led multiple complex interdisciplinary building projects. I also led the establishment of Arup University in the Americas, developing learning and managing research.
As an industry leader, I have chaired the United States Green Building Council, Urban Green Council, and gave the CIBSE 2016 Annual Lecture "How building services engineers can save civilization," and co-authored Two Degrees: The Built Environment and our Changing Climate. I currently serve on NYC’s Climate Mitigation Act Advisory Board.
