I’m a Lecturer in Urban Design at the University of Sheffield, UK. I completed my Ph.D. in Urban Design at the Melbourne School of Design where I also taught graduate urban planning and design studios. I’m an international affiliate of the Informal Urbanism Research Hub (InfUr-) at the University of Melbourne. I co-founded and now co-direct Estudio Abierto/Open Studio, a think+do tank on architecture and urbanism. Previously I was a Research Fellow and Faculty at the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design as well as practiced urban design as a Project Designer at the Community Design Center–both at the University of Arkansas, USA. My work in UACDC has garnered numerous AIA National Award for Urban and Regional Planning, as well as my writing on design philosophy and urbanism has been published internationally. I hold a professional B.Arch from BRAC University and an M.Arch in Ecological Urbanism from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York.
