I am an interdisciplinary teacher and researcher with a background in human geography, planning, urban design and housing. Prior to taking up my current position at Oxford Brookes University, I was a Senior Lecturer in City Planning at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. I have also worked as a planner in both the public and private sectors. My research is situated at the intersection of planning, design and development, and has most recently focused on the governance of design in Sydney. To date, I have been a Lead or Chief Investigator on research grants worth more than AU$1.6m. I have also taught a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in planning, urban design and research design, and have received many awards for the quality of my courses and curriculum development work.
