My research interest lies in the human-built environment interaction. It seeks to investigate how the built environment affects human health and well-being, physical activity and social life. My research interests include public life studies, place-making, liveability, socio-cultural studies and environmental behaviour studies. Currently, I am working on a number of projects which are based upon monitoring and evaluating public and green spaces, social life and liveability.

Fields of Research: Architecture, Building, Design Practice and Management, Urban and Regional Planning
