I am pathologically curious about the world and a large part of my life has been spent with my nose in the pages of a book.

This led me into academic research 

My PhD research took me away from traditional transport planning and into Science and Technology Studies. I told the story of the Unfinished Foreshore Freeway and about how ways of valuing such as ‘efficiency’ or ‘speed’ are stubborn. They become embedded in materials and technologies; embodied in individuals or social arrangements; or circulate in engineering practices.
