Biography

I am an environmental sociologist working on active transport and sustainability transitions. I have an interest in environmental health and health equity and I am currently the Research Fellow on the 'Future of the Bike' project at the University of Auckland. I have considerable experience working in planning environments - both at Council and with community groups - and am interested in how we can work together to lift quality of life in our cities.
