Biography

Fiona graduated with a BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering degree from the University of Glasgow in 1989. She joined Arup upon graduation as a Structural/Civil Engineer and worked on a wide variety of Civil Engineering projects in the UK and overseas based in the Glasgow, Aberdeen, Manchester and Sydney Offices. In 1996 she became a Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng MICE) and in 2002, after a thirteen year career with Arup, she left the company to become a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde. Between 2004 and 2010 she was the Course Director for the Building Design Engineering (BDE) Undergraduate Programme - a multi-disciplinary, triple accredited MEng and March Course for Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Architecture students. In addition, between 2010 and 2015 she was the Director of Architectural Technology.

In 2015 Fiona joined the University of Glasgow as a Senior Lecturer in the field of Structural Design and in August 2016 she was appointed the Deputy Head of Civil Engineering. In January 2017 she became the Head of the Civil Engineering Discipline at the University of Glasgow which is her current position.


Research Interests

Fiona’s research interests focus on topics related to Low Energy Building Design. These range from evaluating opportunities for the greater utilisation of low carbon materials and off-site building systems to studying various methods for improving the energy performance of buildings. Specific energy reduction strategies and topics she is currently researching include “smart and intelligent” buildings, off-site construction, low carbon materials, whole life cycle analysis and Building Information Management (BIM).  Fiona’s recently graduated PhD students have worked in the fields of “energy supply and demand matching” and “natural construction materials” and she is currently supervising four PhD students. These students are working in the fields of: “Dowellam” timber systems manufactured from UK grown timber; timber off-site construction systems; whole life cycle analysis of domestic construction and the opportunities for deep geothermal energy supply in the West of Scotland.   


Teaching

Fiona currently teaches four courses related to Structural Design Theory and Structural Design Projects in Years 2 to 4.  She also teaches half of the Civil Engineering Skills 2 course which includes the Constructionarium Course in 2nd year. She supervises various MEng, BEng and MSc projects on a wide range of topics relating to structural and civil engineering design and construction as well as building energy performance. In the past she has also taught courses in Construction Materials, Construction Technology, Architectural Design and Environmental Engineering. In 2004 she completed a PG Cert in Advanced Academic Studies and this led to her achieving her FHEA qualification.
