She is an architectural historian with research centred on the relationship between financial processes and the built environment. Her current research explores the history of corporate architecture and workplaces, the role played by commercial architects and developers, and the intersection of gender and workplace design. Her forthcoming book with MIT Press focuses on the post-war development of the City of London (London’s financial centre).
