After obtaining a BSc (Hons) Psychology at Aberdeen University (2000), and an MSc Environmental Psychology at the University of Surrey (2001), I began a ten-year period of research within the field of Environmental Psychology. At Surrey University I worked on various projects, funded by The Countryside Agency and Guildford Borough Council, examining public opinion and behaviour trends regarding sustainable transport, local facilities, environmental sustainability and perceptions of crime and disorder.
In 2003, I moved to Kingston University to conduct research, funded by NHS Estates, ICI, Department for Transport, and the AHRC, into the impact of environmental design on well-being, dementia care, and way-finding for application within care homes, hospitals and transport environments, as well as confined environments such as prisons and space crafts.
In 2011, I acquired the role of Academic Skills Advisor for the Kingston School of Art, teaching undergraduate and post-graduate research and academic writing skills.
In 2017, I was awarded a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) for teaching and learning support in higher education.
