I am a multidisciplinary researcher; interested in a range of subjects from spatial analysis and statistical modeling, to health and behavioural psychology. My main research interests focus on housing, and in particular, the tiny house movement in Australia; and modeling value uplift and urban growth using statistical and GIS methods. I am a keen hiker and freelance writer, blogging about hiking, and writing books about breaking habits and techniques to help anxiety.
