He is a candidate for a PhD at Sydney University where he is investigating the tensions of land use planning and strategic agricultural regions on Australia's eastern seaboard, which is creating contested landscapes. This will include horticultural production which is mostly on the metropolitan fringe and coastal areas, where population growth is causing the contestation as well as the inland which grows crops where coal mining and coal seam gas is causing the contestation.
