Biography

Cities and regions are rapidly evolving and so it's crucial to understand the drivers behind these changes so researchers, planners, policymakers, and communities can collaborate towards inclusive, equitable, and sustainable development. By leveraging big data and digital technologies, we can reach a comprehensive understanding in less time to ensure research is still relevant by the time it can be translated into planning policy and practice.

As an urban and regional planning academic with expertise in human geography, software development, and data science, I leverage big data, digital technologies, and spatial modelling techniques to support positive change in urban and regional development. With over a decade of research experience across academia and government, I bridge the gap between academia and industry.

My research focuses on urban and regional planning, big data, and data science, using spatial analysis and data visualization techniques to address complex urban challenges. I have published numerous articles in top-tier academic journals, lead successful research grants to develop national data products and present my planning research overseas, and presented my research at conferences around the world.

In addition to my academic research, I have been a developer within the ATRC developing transport data pipelines and web visualisation microservices, and a senior data analyst within the ABS leading a interdisciplinary team of data analyst investigating where big data can replace household survey collection for data products used by multiple government departments. As such, I have experience within and outside of academia with developing knowledge, techniques, and tools used by planners and policymakers to improve urban planning processes and outcomes.

As an educator, I strive to mentor and inspire the next generation of planners to think creatively and critically about urban challenges, and augmenting their planning expertise with big data and spatial data science. Planning is inherently collaborative and interdisciplinary, and I encourage students to gain broad and inclusive perspectives to ensure planning policy and practice addresses the needs of today and tomorrow's increasingly globalised urban and regional communities.

If you are interested in learning more about my work or collaborating on a project, please reach out as I am appreciate opportunities to connect and collaborate with others who share my passion for creating more just and sustainable cities where vibrant and diverse local communities can flourish
