Science & Technology Sector Co-Leader

Senior Principal

Every day, I get to work with the best and brightest minds who are tasked with finding a cure for cancer, developing novel therapies, or healing our planet. I'm passionate about designing scientific research buildings that help these problem-solvers make the next great discoveries.

For over 30 years, I've partnered with clients and design teams to translate science and technology needs into the ideal physical environment. It's a truly collaborative process — listening, synthesizing ideas, and building consensus. The goal is to arrive at design solutions that are as prototypical as the research itself.

The next generation of laboratory design requires specialization, flexibility, and sustainability. I believe environmentally responsible, energy-saving choices like high-performing building envelopes, efficient building systems, and effective performance zones are essential for keeping facilities at the forefront of science.

Leading sophisticated research facility projects at many top-tier universities has provided opportunities to share research and perspectives with Tradeline, SCUP, and AURP. And as the Managing Principal of the Boston office, I look forward to mentoring our next generation of design professionals.

What's possible for your science and technology project? I’m excited to talk with you about the problems you want to solve and the discoveries you hope to make.
