Urban Design Leader
I am an architect and urban designer with over 25 years of global experience in the UK, US, Middle East and India, leading Arup's Masterplanning and Urban Design team in London.
I am involved in preparing award-winning masterplans, strategic plans, and urban design guides for institutions, city districts, neighbourhoods, waterfronts, brownfield sites, and public open space. Some examples of these include London's 2012 Olympic Legacy Masterplan; a plan for the expansion of the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in South Cambridgeshire and a new 7 square km urban district near Muscat Oman.
In 2019, I took on the role as India’s Group Leader, recognising the opportunity to contribute to the sustainable growth of one of the world’s most dynamic and multifaceted places. I aim to bring in our knowledge, insight and specialist design, such as integrated planning to help tackle the big challenges some cities are facing in this region.
Outside of Arup, I am a Mayor’s Design Advocate responsible for promoting design excellence as part of the Mayor of London's Good Growth by Design programme. I sit on the London Design Review Panel and review panels for Transport for London and the Old Oak Park Royal Development Corporation.
