To date, I have published 89 papers in peer reviewed international journals, 10 invited book chapters and 55 technical reports (9 first author).
I have presented at 120 health promotion, mental health, urban design and public health conferences (28 international). Additionally, I am often invited to present to non-academic audiences – it is often these presentations that have the most impact in the real world.
