Frisian cow and me

    Here you'll find an overview of my work in landscape architecture and spatial planning. I focus on ecological applications in design and planning,
riparian urbanism, green networks, novel ecosystems, and co-design with underserved communities.
    Since 2005 I've collaborated on action research in south Asia and sub-Sahara Africa that fosters community / landscape co-resilience in the face of climate change and globalization. During my recent sabbatical I explored convivial greenstreets in Europe.
    I teach several studios, seminars, and field courses, with an emphasis on community-engaged design.
