Personal profile

Research interests

Qualifying initially as a Charterd Surveyor in general practice in the UK, I worked in both the public and private sectors in the areas of commercial property valuation, international development (World bank /AusAID) and land management in Australia, UK, SE Asia and Namibia, which have given me the opportunity to study property market processes, people and place, and their evolution over time and cultural context.

My interest in the management of built heritage arises out of the study of the relationship between people, property and place. I have a background in property valuation and corporate property asset management.


Statement for HDR students

Two of my current PhD students are looking at a comparison of built heritage management in Australia and Tanzania, and at the planning and design of beach precincts.
