Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on adaptation and investment in the built environment and has evolved along three strands:

1) Strategic Public Sector Finance – where I investigate how land value and real estate income (for example, property tax, land value capture and commercial real estate Investment) is being used to fund public sector service delivery and policy objectives. I am particularly interested in the nature of property tax, its relationship with the changing world of work, and how this income can be retained for public policy objectives.

2) Stranded Assets in the Built Environment – where I investigate how new demand and legislative drivers are stranding property assets and how this threat can be countered through methods of adaptation. This research currently focuses on: a) developing holistic understandings of climate related stranded assets that combine physical assets and also financial cashflows b) developing better conceptual understandings of building vacancy and how this can be countered through new perspective of urban planning that enable the contemporary demand for building adaptation.

3) Knowledge Management – inspired by the writing of Michael Polanyi, where I investigate the generation, dynamics, and transference of tacit knowledge in the face of new modes of learning, teaching and working (for example austerity and the digital built environment).

In partnership with students, alumni, and practice, I am committed to developing authentic learning environments that give current and prospective students the experience, core skills, and competencies to work in the dynamic built environment.

Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears (Italo Calvino, 1972).

Biography

I am a Lecturer in Built Environment Adaptation and Investment in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment at Northumbria University and co-founder of R3intelligence Consultancy. After several years working in the field of urban regeneration, I completed a doctorate in building obsolescence and adaptive re-use in 2015 before taking up a full-time Lectureship at Northumbria University in 2016.
