I am a Lecturer and Research Fellow in the Department of Geography, Environment and Population, and the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning. I completed my PhD in Architecture, which was awarded with Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence, at The University of Adelaide in 2016.

My research focusses on the relative risk of housing disadvantage, households' lived experience of poor housing conditions, and the implications for population health and wellbeing.I have established a research program across housing precarity (e.g. affordability and instability) and indoor cold (including upstream problems of energy hardship). The early contribution and high potential for social, environmental and economic benefit of my work has been recognised through multiple awards for research excellence.

My teaching expertise spans the conceptualisation of housing and urban systems, indoor thermal comfort theory and assessment, building standards and objective performance assessment, architectural design studio, research methodology, and urbanisation. I co-supervise two PhD students, Charmaine Thredgold and Laura James.

I produce quality basic and applied research crossing the disciplinary boundaries of architectural science, human geography and public health. My research career has been guided by an aim to respond and contribute to contemporary discourse, and create knowledge on the impact of living environments on population health and wellbeing. My research program has contributed to research impact and knowledge creation through three key areas that have significant potential for policy translation, and social, environmental and economic benefit: a new theoretical position on housing disadvantage, housing standards and energy hardship, and unaffordable housing and material disadvantage.
