I am a Lecturer in Human Geography within the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Queensland in Brisbane. I received my BA from the University of Southern California in Geography and International Relations, and my MSc and PhD from The Pennsylvania State University in Geography.
My primary interest is in economic globalisation. This research began in Panama City, but has incorporated Hong Kong, Dubai, Singapore, and most recently Luxembourg City as a case study site. My most recent research focusses on economic networks, and how these shape urban and territorial development. This research applies spatial analysis and social network analysis (SNA) and I was recently awarded an Australian Research Council grant to further this work on global economic networks through 2019.
