Welcome.
   
Here you'll find  an overview of my work in landscape architecture and spatial planning. I focus on cross-cultural and place-based design, green networks, riparian urbanism, novel and restored ecosystems, and ecologically-informed planting design.

  
I've collaborated with action researchers on
resilience building projects in locales in India, Nepal, Ghana and Tanzania - places that struggle with impacts of climate change and globalisation. Lately, I've been exploring convivial greenstreets in dense urban cores.
   
I teach advanced and intermediate studios and seminars, and particularly enjoy connecting my students with underserved communities.
