Our research encompasses a range of academic disciplines, including the physical and social sciences and the arts and humanities.
We are interested in what is 'new' about contemporary urbanism, including the techniques through which cities are governed, the how lives are lived.

The boundaries of life and non-life, and human and non-human life, are at stake across a range of contemporary scientific, social and economic.
Our research is inspired by the political urgencies of the present, while seeking broader historical contexts and conceptual links.
Physical Activity and Health Inequalities
We make a difference by addressing inequalities, promoting social justice, and ensuring better health and wellbeing through sport and exercise.
Objective measurements and subjective experience of weather; wind chill, bushfires, intergenerational weather encounters and research methods.

The benefits of undertaking physical activities are well known, and sport, physical activity and nutrition play a vital role in healthy communities.
