I’m a chartered fire engineer, Global Fire Engineering skills leader for Arup, Fellow of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers and a member of the Board of Trustees for the Fire Protection Research Foundation. I have over 20 years of experience in fire safety across the built environment in the UK, USA, Middle East and Africa and regularly collaborate with our global team of over 300 fire safety consultants on a host of topics.
Over the course of the last 10 years I have delivered fire safety solutions from inception to operation across multiple aviation projects for new and existing terminals in the Middle East. In recent years I have lead project teams in the delivery of building codes and fire safety codes of practice.
I am passionate about helping Arup deliver on sustainability without reducing fire safety. Fire safety challenges associated with mass timber, alternative energy sources, green facades, integrated photo voltaic panels and other solutions are a focus for our research at Arup University as we strive to safely deliver net zero in construction and operation of our projects.
