I am a part 2 architect and doctoral student based at the University of Ulster. I achieved both my Part 1 (Batchelor of Arts) and Part 2 (Masters Architecture) at the University of Ulster. I feel a sense of pride in graduating from this course, which has a strong emphasis on the artistic and theoretical aspects of Architecture whilst ensuring it's students have a good foundation in the practical side of the profession. I believe this has given me an awareness of the many issues Architecture attempts to address.I am a regular contributor to the PLACE blog, the LSE Review of Books and local arts magazine ‘The Ulster Folk’ as well as maintaining my own research blog. I am also an occasional psychogeograher while maintaing a healthy cynicism of pseudo-psychology.
