My research delves into the historical dimensions and theoretical concepts to do with spatial violence, balkanization, borders and territories, and conflict/post-conflict - how these notions manifest at the complex intersection of architecture, urbanism, military, media, economics, technology, literature and film.


I have a BA in Architecture and Sociology from the University of New South Wales, Australia. My PhD, which I completed at the University of Sydney, addressed the expansion and inflection of urbicide since its conception.

I have written on matters to do with geopolitical and territorial fragmentation, urban destruction and reconstruction; spatial history of war, media, and technology; to, the politics of identity-(re)construction of former Yugoslav cities.

Prior to joining the University of Plymouth as a Lecturer in Architecture, I taught in Architecture and Sociology at the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology. Currently, I am supporting the teaching in Architecture at HKU Space Architecture. In July, 2019 I was invited to teach in Architecture at the University of Auckland, NZ. My industry experience is in high-end residential architecture.
