My research addresses global challenges persistent in urban environments such as rapid urbanisation, degraded ecosystems, climate change, and social justice, through three interlinked themes: applied climatology, urban ecosystems, and urban climate adaptation planning.

My research emphasises interdisciplinary approaches, usually incorporating application of geographical information systems (GIS), and seeks to promote impactful research that influences policy and practice.

Geography – a subject combining both social and natural sciences – is an essential subject that enables a better understanding of today’s complex global challenges including climate change and disaster resilience, rapid urbanisation, degraded ecosystems, and social justice.

My teaching includes undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in geographical information systems, urban environments, and climate change.
