I was awarded a PhD from the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies – UCL, in Environmental Design and Engineering. I am a UK RIBA part 2 Architect with over 12 years of experience in Architecture, Architectural Technology, Sustainability and Health and Wellbeing in the Built Environment and Building Information Modelling (BIM). In industry, my work covered a wide range of projects including mixed-used, commercial, healthcare and residential buildings in different countries around the world; including but limited to USA, UK, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.
I am one of the very few who started a career in the UK building industry in the world of BIM. To date, I am a BIM lead and consultant for a number of UK leading Architecture practices like Foster + Partners, and the Subject Lead of BIM at the University of Northampton.
I am an editor for the International Journal of Child and Adolescence Psychiatry, the International Journal of Nervous System and the International Journal of Physiological Phenomena, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am a reviewer for the International Journal of Global Health and the International Journal of Behavior Therapy and Mental Health.
My research is one of the most influential in the field of Indoor Air Quality and Thermal Comfort and its relationship with Cognitive Performance of occupants and their productivity and with Environmental Design and Engineering. As such, I authored key publications which contributed significantly to Buildings’ Standards and Policy Formulation.
