Organisation or Individual Expertise:
I am a Senior Lecturer in Geography, Director of the BA Geography Programme and Senior Fellow in Teaching and Academic Development at University College Dublin. My research interests are in the processes and outcomes of urban transformations in Western cities, and in particular in former waterfront districts. I have a particular interest in the role of the public sector in the regeneration of brownfield sites. Current comparative research with international colleagues focuses on the environmentally and socially sustainable reuse of vacant and/or contaminated (brownfield) properties in Europe (particularly Ireland) and the United States within the context and contradictions of neoliberal policies to promote economic development.
