Biography

I am a hockey player, a runner and a traveller.

Throughout my life in Scotland and in Australia I have been constantly struck by the fact that where there is prosperity, there is poverty not far away. My experience in the public education systems of Edinburgh and Sydney informed much of what I went on to study at University, and my interest in how cities express, manage, or exacerbate inequality. I am now hoping to develop new ways of thinking about inequality, how it affects society, and how our approach to economics can be re-imagined to produce socially just cities.
