Research interests

Through three interlinked themes:

  • applied climatology
  • urban ecosystems
  • urban climate adaptation planning

My research addresses global challenges persistent in urban environments, such as:

  • rapid urbanisation
  • degraded ecosystems
  • climate change
  • social justice

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