He spent a number of years working as a site engineer / site manager in the West Midlands area, on building and civil engineering projects. After completing a BSc (Hons) in Building Construction and Management at the University of Reading he went on to study for a PhD and commenced his full-time academic career working as a Research Fellow, both at Reading.
