He is passionate about his role as both a teacher and researcher and is motivated by a desire to carry out research in areas that are relevant to improving the sustainability of cities. He believes that the best urban policy is informed by evidence and strives through his teaching and research to make a difference to the cities in which he lives and works.

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD — email supervisor to discuss availability.

As an urban planner I am interested in the way that cities develop and how they contribute to the quality of human life as well as how they impact on the environment. In this latter regard I have a long standing research interest in the energy demand of  cities and the variety of ways this demand  is met along with  the  environmental implications of particular energy policies. This interest led me to be interested in climate change and how cities, as major energy consumers and greenhouse gas emitters, can mitigate their impacts by adopting energy efficiency measures and employing renewable technologies into their energy mix.  Following on from this aspect I became interested in how cities might adapt more generally to a changing climate. My second research interest concerns the mechanisms by which urban development occurs. Government investment in infrastructure, private sector investment in new property and  the interactions and synergies between these two major forces is a growing area of my research activity. A common theme that unites all of my research is its applicability to policy. I strive to ensure that my work is disseminated to a professional audience and to government and try to take every opportunity to use the outcomes of my research to inform policy making.

I am  a member of the Sustainable Built Environment Research Group and China-Australia Sustainable Research Unit.

ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: Climate change is causing year on year rise in sea levels (SLR) which is increasingly impacting on existing coastal settlements through flooding and erosion. The research group was initially engaged by the Federal Dept of Climate Change under the Coastal Adaptation Decision Support Pathways project to develop a tool to assist local councils make costed policy decisions in respect of such threatened communities. The final report was published in 2012. This led to team members being commissioned by DC Mallala (2012) and Yorke Peninsula Council (2015) to undertake work using this tool to evaluate potential SLR issues in respect of eight settlements in South Australia. Reports are available for each affected settlement. The work for DC Mallala was awarded a commendation in the SA Planning Institute of Australia Awards 2014. The contribution of the research is to understanding how to address flooding risk in small coastal settlements. It advances understanding of the data required to inform decision making, the methodologies to be employed and the contribution to sound policy making that flows from detailed community consultation and engagement. Media interest in the project outcomes was high with numerous interviews and newspaper articles published. Details of the studies were presented at three conferences and the Mallala study forms a case study in the NCCARF CoastAdapt package. Some physical flood protection works have been carried out in several of the subject settlements and policy innovations in respect of emergency planning measures and recommended finished floor levels for new developments are significant outcomes of the work.
