I am a Professor of Urban and Environmental Geography. I am a human geographer with interests in sustainable cities, environmental issues and human/animal relations.
My current research focuses on sustainable cities, transport infrastructure and representations of nature in the construction of a range of environmental issues. Within the area of sustainable cities I am researching the use of metrics such as Ecological Footprints and migration issues such as the tree-change phenomenon in Australia. My research on nature includes human-animal relations, particularly thoroughbred breeding and the uses of nature. My work combines urban environmental history with policy and planning research that is future-oriented.
