The Bartlett School of Planning is a world centre for learning and research about the form, planning, design and management of cities. Our location, history and expertise have made our programmes and research among the most stimulating and sought-after in the field of planning.
We are part of The Bartlett: UCL's global faculty of the built environment.
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.
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.
