Overview

My professional background is in planning and development consultancy, during which I advised on planning applications, development briefs and affordable housing viability for public and private sector clients. During this experience, I became acutely aware of how my professional practice was shaped by the broader political environment. This has led to my academic research being informed by how political ideas and politics shape policy, governance and practice regarding development land markets and urban planning.

Supervisions

I am currently supervising two PhD students, but am always interested in working with more postgraduate research students.

Do get in touch if you are interested in doing a PhD broadly in one or more of the following areas:

  • The political economy of land markets.
  • Politics and urban governance.
  • Planning reform.
  • International comparisons of planning and land market systems.
  • Political economy and the development process.
  • Housing development.

Even if your research idea doesn't neatly fit into one of the above categories, but you still think I might be interested, then do not hesitate to get in touch. I'm always happy to have a chat.
