Personal profile


Lee-Anne is a key member of Urban Lab at Monash University, where she works with academic, industry and government partners to develop design models for more affordable, sustainable housing and urban precincts. Her research focuses on the transformation of the established city and operates across the scales of building, precinct and region. She employs speculative design as tool for navigating the complex, and often conflicting, imperatives of urban regeneration and to enable complex stakeholder-inputs to be synthesised into integrative and strategic spatial policies. Lee-Anne’s PhD, for example, examined new architectural and urban design possibilities for small-scale housing infill in Melbourne’s middle suburbs, with the aim of advancing policies for ’greyfield redevelopment’.   

She has taught design and communication subjects at RMIT and Monash Universities and, prior to joining the Urban Lab, gained her professional registration working on a range of education, civic and residential projects. Most recently, she has been leading an inter-disciplinary study into the spatial morphology and potential for precinct-scaled renewal of suburban industrial centres with colleagues in the Departments of Economics, Architecture and Urban History. 

Lee-Anne is accepting PhD candidates who are interested in employing multi-scalar and design-led research approaches to address the various social and environmental challenges confronting our cities.
