As a BIM Coordinator, she is also interested in how technology can support interdisciplinary collaboration and improve building management, particularly of heritage assets.

Following a MSc Built Environment; Sustainable Heritage at UCL, she worked in a whole life carbon consultancy where she qualified as a Certified Passivhaus Designer. After returning to architectural practice she completed her Part 3 in 2016 at Edinburgh University.
