What inspired you to take up this role?
“I’ve always had an interest in sustainability and how everything is interconnected. It was a focus in my undergraduate degree in Architectural Technology at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). When I joined Kingspan in Australia as a Technical Advisor, I became heavily involved in projects relating to sustainability, leading me to my current role and recent completion of my MSc in Energy and Sustainable Building Design at De Montford University, Leicester, England.”
