About

I'm an urban and regional planner whose research interests include land use planning and design, international planning, climate resilience, multiculturalism and human rights. 



Research

My research works have focused on migration, municipal restructuring, affordable housing and international planning. I edited/co-edited several special issues of Plan Canada on "Welcoming Communities," "Financing Cities," "Planning around the edges," "Centenary Edition," and "Human rights and the city". In addition to 100+ papers and reports, I have authored/edited 3 books "Understanding India's new approach to Spatial Development and Planning," Rights and the City," and "Municipal Boundary Restructuring" (forthcoming). Currently, I am pursuing five projects: 1. Alberta Land Institute-funded project on annexations in Alberta; 2. Alberta Municipalities- funded "future governance options"; 3. SSHRC-funded project "Human Rights and the City"; 4. Alberta Eco trust funded project "urban heat islands in neighbourhoods" and "co-creating neighbourhood climate action" and 5. Canada First Research Excellence Fund-sponsored project "Municipalities and Future Energy Systems".
