0120_ICSPortraitsJulyHello, I’m a human geographer with a broad interest in the organising logics of land, real estate and urban development. I use this website to organise a reading and writing group at the University of Sydney, and to periodically share new work.

I research and write about the colonial histories of land, foreign real estate investment, the politics of urban development, platform real estate and more.

I’m an editor of the International Journal of Housing Policy and Program Director of the Bachelor of Architecture and Environments. I’ve served as a convener of the Institute of Australian Geographers Urban Studies Group, as the Program Director of the Master of Urbanism and the Associate Dean of Student Life in the School of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney. I’ve contributing over 50 opinion pieces and podcasts on cities to outlets such as The Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald, and The Conversation. I’m the founder of City Road Podcast and suite of other audio projects.

My books include:

  • An historical monograph on ‘The Geopolitics of Real Estate: Reconfiguring Property Capital and Rights’
  • An edited book on ‘The Globalisation of Real Estate: The Politics and Practice of Foreign Real Estate Investment’
  • An edited book on ‘Housing in 21st-Century Australia: People, Practices and Policies’
  • A textbook on ‘Understanding Urbanism
