My research focuses on ways that urban planning can be used to improve environmental quality, growth management planning, planning for sustainable urban development, multicriteria evaluation methodologies, ways of assessing environmental justice, and sustainability indicators and their applications in urban planning. I am a founder and the chair of the International Urban Planning and Environment Association that organizes a series of international symposiums (UPE9 – Guangzhou, China, in 2019, UPE10 – Sydney, Australia, in 2012, UPE11 - Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2014, UPE12 - Lisbon, Portugal in 2016); and sponsors the book series Urban Planning and Environment published by Ashgate, which I co-edit. Publications include eight books over last 17 years: six dealing with planning for sustainable urban development (eg. Urban Environmental Planning), and two on planning evaluation (eg. Beyond Benefit Cost Analysis).
