My current role as CEO of the Co-operative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) at UNSW Sydney embodies the research agenda of my entire career: advocating for and creating sustainable, low-carbon buildings and cities.
The CRCLCL is the largest research innovation hub working in the built environment field in Australia and consists of over 50 industry, government and academic partners doing applied, impactful research in all aspects of low-carbon living.
When I think about the big challenge of urbanisation and how we improve the quality of life of people in buildings and cities, I have always been aware of the interconnectedness of the built environment disciplines. Taking a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to problem solving has always set my research apart.
My three decades contribution has been recognised nationally through multiple high-profile awards including the highest accolade in the country, the Order of Australia.
