I am currently a research engineer working at the Urban Sustainability & Resilience Centre (USAR), which is part of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) at University College London (UCL).

I am working with the British Red Cross on a four year project aimed at creating a geographical information system (GIS) tool to improve the understanding of resilience amongst vulnerable people/the elderly in times of crisis.

Before joining UCL I was a researcher at the British Red Cross and a postgraduate researcher at the Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience (IHRR) at Durham University.

I am an avid photographer and you can check out my Flickr photostream here or my photography blog here.
