Research interests

Kevin Muldoon-Smith is an Associate Professor in Strategic Public Sector Finance and Urban Adaptation

My research has evolved along three strands:

1) Strategic Public Sector Finance – where I investigate international systems of local government finance to consider how the sector can be more resilient and demoractically accountable. I am particularly interested in how systems of sub-national governance evolve and transition into new modes of interaction with the state, and how this interacts with land and property.

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 urban adaptation and building based adaptive re-use. This research currently focuses on developing better conceptual understandings of building vacancy and how this vacancy can be countered through new perspectives of urban planning and environmental transistion 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 in the digital built environment.

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