Judy is a Senior Research Fellow with the Cities Research Institute at Griffith University. Judy has over twenty-five years of professional activity in the built environment as: a design architect; leading a team of professionals delivering city-wide solutions for the urban environment; and integrating sustainability into curriculum, design practice and business solutions. Judy's research addresses issues of corporate and social responsibility in the delivery of urban and social infrastructure. Judy brings a focus on meta-research and evaluation frameworks to better leverage research to achieve practical outcomes for both the urban environment and its residents. Current research is focusing on the need for an efficient, effective and equitable social and affordable housing sector in Australia. Research has led to the development of a productivity-based conceptual framework (Rethinking Social Housing); and a Composite Approach to Return on Investment (Valuing Social Housing).
