Associate Professor, School of Planning, Dalhousie University

I’m a researcher, writer, and instructor leading research on rental housing policy, non-profit and co-op housing, and transit-oriented development. I have a M.A. and Ph.D. in planning, and am Registered Professional Planner (RPP). I've worked in a variety of public, private, and non-profit settings, and written about planning issues on my blog, in academic journals, and my two books, Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach and Transit-Oriented Development: Learning from International Case Studies.
