Following three years research into computer applications in architecture I obtained a Swedish Licentiate of Engineering (TeknL ) degree at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University, the nearest UK equivalent is a Masters Degree in Architecture by Research.

I have also studied for the RTPI Joint Distance Diploma in Planning Studies and have university level credits in Business Studies together with several vocational certificates in AutoCad.
