As a Registered Professional Planner (RPP), I'm an Associate Professor at the School of Planning at Dalhousie University and a Founding Fellow of the MacEachen Institute of Public Policy and Governance. My M.A. and Ph.D. are from the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP). I have worked for the Ontario Growth Secretariat, University of Oregon, University of Amsterdam, TransLink, and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. As a research consultant, I've conducted studies for diverse organizations such as BC Non-Profit Housing Association, Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Infrastructure Canada, Phoenix Youth Programs, Autism Nova Scotia, and Institute for Public Policy Research. You can find my research articles under Publications, along with my two books, Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach (Amazon, Oxford University Press, e-rental Redshelf) and Transit-Oriented Development: Learning from International Case Studies (Springer: Palgrave MacMillan).
