I am an Associate Professor at UNSW in the Arts, Design and Architecture faculty, and a UNSW Scientia Fellow. I have more than twenty years of academic experience, which underpin my appointment to leadership positions, as Program Coordinator for the Master of Architecture UNSW (2012-17), the Associate Dean of Education in the Faculty of Built Environment (2017 to 2020) and as a part of the UNSW Built Environment Executive team.
