Craig Townsend is Associate Professor and Chair in the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment. His current research is on changes to the form of suburbs in Canada’s large metropolitan areas and the impacts of legislated protection of non-urban land on urban growth. He is particularly interested in public transportation infrastructure and its links to the form of cities. He has carried out studies on urban transport infrastructure in Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, and is currently part of a project investigating urban mobility in India.
