I am a planner within Arup’s integrated city planning team in London. I have experience across a wide spectrum of work, from development management, to strategic planning, policy, and economics. 

My work at Arup has reshaped the way I think about local policymaking and how we plan for the future. I am particularly interested in the trade-off between planning as an active tool to steer development within our cities, whilst at the same time maintaining a safe distance to allow places to evolve more organically. I believe it is the job of planners and urban practitioners to find the optimum balance between these competing forces.
