I am a Research Student in the School of Civil Engineering & Surveying at the University of Portsmouth.


The final objective of my research is to improve the regulations related to buildings in the Isle of Wight in order to lastingly reduce energy demand and have a positive impact. This means not only to generate the knowledge but to actively help stakeholders to implement the change. I'm the PhD students representative for the Faculty Research Degrees Committee.
