I have been at UCL since 2006. Before that I was at the LSE in the Department of Geography and Environment for 16 years. Prior to that I taught at the University of East London (Departments of Applied Economics and Land Mangement) and De Montfort University (School of Land and Building Studies). I have a BA in Land Economy (with Economics Part 1) and a PhD in Urban and Regional Planning Studies. I am a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and an accredited Mediator.

Research Summary

My research focuses on governance for urban sustainability. I am interested in a range of policy issues that contribute to the sustainability agenda including urban planning, energy, construction and design, green space management, etc. I draw on a range of methodological tools, including social network analysis and discourse analysis, and am interested in conceptual approaches drawing on socio-technical studies and actor-network theory as well as governance and social capital theories.

Teaching Summary

My teaching is mainly on the MSc Sustainable Urbanism, where I lead on the module on Sustainable Property: investment, development and valuation. I have also taught Critical Debates in Sustainable Urbanism. I contribute sessions on sustainable cities, mediation, social network analysis, dissertation writing and skills. I am part of the team that provides the induction week mini-course introducing economic analysis to MSc students.
