Personal profile


I am a lecturer in the School of Engineering & Computing, UWS, Paisley Campus. I have a teaching interest in management studies, sustainable construction, construction management, construction technology & logistics and dissertation writing. In research, key interest include engineering education and wider pedagogical studies, team working in project environments, construction framework agreement, corporate dynamics and the management of construction supply chains.

Area of academic expertise - outline

My primary area of interest is construction management and in particular supply chain management, economic exchange and construction procurement. In particular, much has been made about supply chain management in construction and considerable attention given to early industry adopters. From an organizational institutionalism perspective of innovation, diffusion and development; non-adoption is of equally significant interest.  Other research interests embrace the following themes; teams and team working in a project environment, organisational learning, governance and institutional behaviour.

Current research activities

I am currently focused on construction and engineering educational studies. Pedagogical studies include new methods of introducing undergraduate civil engineers to construction technology, best practice for undergraduate visits to construction sites and anticipatory socialization of civil engineering undergraduates.

Target collaborative companies

Construction organizations with interest in supply chain management and Principal Supply Chain Partners (PSCP) and members working in construction framework agreements (public sector).

Target collaborative organisations
