My research is concerned with community welfare and well-being in western societies. I approach these topics from the perspectives of social, cultural and health geography. My thinking is also shaped by work in psychology and psychotherapy, community and public health, and by interdisciplinary scholarship on emotion and affect. A number of my current projects are connected to recovery after the Canterbury earthquakes. I am a member of the editorial board for Social and Cultural Geography and a previous member of the editorial advisory board for Social Science and Medicine. I previously served on the University of Canterbury Human Ethics Committee. Current and recent research projects:• Shaping Places / Future Neighbourhoods (NSC11 Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities)• Transforming geographical education: learning for Earth futures• Living in the colour-coded city: understanding and building community resilience • Stories of movement: experiences of disruption and adjustment in a post-quake city
