Vivien joined Loughborough University in June 2017 as Lecturer in Construction and Project Management. Previously she was a Research Associate at the University of New South Wales and undertook her PhD studies at the University of Hong Kong. Her PhD explored the politics of engagement, specifically how power relationships play out during public engagement processes for urban development projects. In September 2022 Vivien joined the academic leadership of C-DICE, the Centre for Postdoctoral Development in Infrastructure Cities and Energy. Vivien’s current research interests fall under the following broad areas: public engagement and stakeholder management; risk management of critical infrastructure; health, safety and wellbeing in the work place; sociotechnical interfaces and communicating across knowledge boundaries; and the power dynamics at play in projects. She is a qualitative researcher, with expertise in processual research and ethnographic techniques.
