Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Associate Professor of Urban Planning at the Faculty of Society and Design, Bond University. I have previously taught in the urban planning program at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for more than twelve years. I also worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University.

I have carried out research on topics such as master planned communities, smart cities, disaster management, transit oriented development, active and healthy living, sustainable campus and knowledge-based regional economy. Together with academics from QUT’s Creative Industry faculty, we have received an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage grant on the use of community narratives and new media in urban planning. I have also worked on a collaborative research grant from Emergency Queensland on the role of local government in disaster management.

I am an alumni of the East West Center, a Hawaii based research organisation with strong focus on policy research in Asia Pacific region, and a member of the University Sustainability Committee at Bond University.
