I am an Engineer and Project Manager in Arup’s Advanced Technology and Research group (AT+R). Across the course of my career I have gained experience in commercial innovation and technology management, and I now manage Arup Ventures as well as other projects relating to commercialisation.
In relation to Arup Ventures, I am responsible for managing the portfolio and supporting investment decisions, as well as leading some of the individual ventures. These innovations span the breadth of the built environment industry, and encompass joint ventures, spin-outs and technology licencing arrangements. I have expertise in project management, partnering, technology licensing and contracts, fund management, and intellectual property development and management, and am connected into the burgeoning built environment start-up and venture capital ecosystem.
Our ventures have won numerous industry awards and I was recognised by Building Magazine as one of the UK’s 50 Sustainability Stars in 2015.
