My research bridges the design disciplines and the social sciences with a particular focus on urban sustainability.  I am a Lecturer in Architecture and Urbanism in the School of Environment, Education and Development at the University of Manchester.  I am also a co-director of cities@manchester, and a co-director of the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy (CURE).

In addition, I am co-director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Power Systems where my role focuses on the links between engineering and the humanities whilst also having a lead role in dealing with student related matters in the CDT.
