I am a social scientist and researcher investigating human relationships to architecture, the environment and cities. Currently, I am in the final stages of a PhD on transport and urban regeneration, specifically how walkable neighborhoods encourage public transport ridership and how this has a multiplier effect on the environmental, economic and social benefits of public transport. I am a PhD candidate at the Yale University School of Architecture and the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London, which was recently ranked 2nd in world for Architecture and the Built Environment. The majority of my PhD was supervised by Professor Sir Peter Hall.
Research projects I have worked on include indicators of sustainable neighborhoods, changing economics of high streets in London, sustainable cities masters programs, energy consumption and public transport mode comparisons.
Previously, I have been an architect and urban designer and have worked predominantly on transport and residential developments in the United States, India, China, Singapore and Kazakhstan. My work and research involves the complex interrelations and synergies of urban regeneration, sustainability and public transport.
