Half the world’s population now lives in urban areas and this presents both challenges and opportunities. My background is in planning and anthropology and I think this is a good combination for trying to understand the complex inter-relationships that exist in cities.

I have also been working with the C40 Cities on a programme of UrbanLife workshops to address climate change and resilience.
