As a construction engineer; a military surveyor; a local councillor; and as a lecturer and researcher in green taxes, he has worked to bring about the more effective use of GI. He has a special interest in the policy aspects of GI and the ways in which land markets and sustainable urban development can be made to work better in society through its use.
