Biography

I am Professor of Urban Futures and currently also Head of Urban Studies based the School of Social and Political Sciences.

My first degree, in biology, was from the University of Bern (Switzerland). This was followed by doctoral research on technology policy (within the field of Science and Technology Studies) at Imperial College, University of London, under the supervision of John Durant (1993-1998). I subsequently spent over 20 years at the University of Westminster including as director of the Centre for the Study of Democracy and founding director of the doctoral Graduate School. As Professor of Science & Technology Studies, I co-founded the International Eco-Cities Initiative in partnership with Dr Arthur Molella (Smithsonian Institution, USA) and Professor Robert Kargon (Johns Hopkins University, USA).

Professional appointments have included membership of funding committees (e.g. Wellcome Trust), advisory committees (e.g. chair of Vitae Researcher Development Advisory Group), technical committees (e.g. BSI Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities SDS/2), examination boards (e.g. University of Oxford), and editorial boards (e.g. Journal of Spatial Research & Planning). In 2022, I was appointed Associate Editor of the leading international journal Cities.

Research interests

With a background in Science & Technology Studies (STS), my research interests are in the fields of:

  • Urban Futures
  • Sustainable urban development
  • Urban technologies
  • Policy analysis and governance of urban innovation

I am associate director of the ESRC-funded Urban Big Data Centre.
