Rosie joined MASS Design Group’s Kigali office in September 2016 as a structural engineer from Engineers Without Borders. She now leads a diverse team of international and multidisciplinary engineers in the design and implementation of innovative projects throughout East Africa.
Rosie helped to lead the team through design and construction using earth and wood, which involves interpreting local and international building codes to design structures that would be seismically appropriate for the region.
She is now contributing to research which will inform standards for adobe block (mud brick) construction, commonly used in rural areas.
She also sits on the Rwanda Standards Board Technical Committee for Civil Engineering and Building Materials.
