After ten years in academic research, I've spent the last five years working for engineering, planning, and architecture firms. I was a consultant at AECOM before joining Foster + Partners. Since establishing Human City last year, I've advised on a range of shared housing development projects in the private and public sector. Historically, I have contributed to anthropological debates about expertise, knowledge and personhood in relation my Ph.D. on access to information law in Scotland. Today, I focus on applying my anthropological knowledge to urban planning and development. I am currently designing a research project focusing on the moral economy of housing. I am a public speaker.
