I am an Associate Professor of Urban and Transport Planning in the School of Planning, Design, and Construction (SPDC - please consider joining URP) at Michigan State University. I hold a joint appointment with the Global Urban Studies Program (GUSP - please consider joining our program) and am an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Geography.

I am currently on sabbatical (2015/2016) as a Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
 
 
My research work centers around resilience, sustainability and large scale urban planning projects that are triggered by global forces. Most of my work focuses on how  mega events like the Olympic Games, FIFA World Cups, and World Expositions transform urban space.
 

Research Interests
