Urban biospheres and public health.
I explore how people interact with urban nature on a day to day basis. The meanings, values and aspirations held by urban residents with regard to nature are key areas of research focus. I also examine how local governments and other decision makers go about making the most of living infrastructure and what challenges they face. My research has an applied direction; towards developing tangible ways to increase engagement with urban nature. The mental and physical health benefits of nature in the city are significant and wider recognition of its value is vital for the wellbeing of urban populations. My vision is to encourage co-creation of novel and robust urban living landscapes into the future.
