Dr Carl O'Coill "studied architecture at the Hull School of Architecture and at the University of York, gaining a Doctorate in Architecture in 2001. His research interests are diverse but are related by a consistent concern with social and cultural issues in architecture. Areas of exploration include the cultural politics of architectural design, the political economy of urban development, focusing on the UK context and East Africa, public participation in architecture and urban regeneration as well as architectural visualization and virtual reality as they relate to user involvement in the design process. Dr O'Coill is also a practicing participatory designer and has been involved in a wide range of community-based architecture and urban design projects in the UK over the past five years, from small-scale urban landscaping schemes to larger estate regeneration initiatives."
