I’m interested in: 1) Relational examinations of housing poverty and wealth in cities; 2) Asia-Australia transnational housing relations; and 3) The urban intersections of democracy and public and private sector infrastructure provision.
WHY DID I BECOME AN ACADEMIC?
Hint – it involves a 20,000km cycle trip along the Old Silk Road.
