Biographical details

Robyn joined the Faculty in 2016, bringing with her longstanding research in urbanism. Her current research is concerned with the ways in which urban governance and urban life are responding to climate change and technological disruptions. Funded by a number of ARC Discovery grants in collaboration with Professor Pauline McGuirk of the University of Wollongong, she builds upon the foundations of urban planning to explore the partnerships and complex relationships through which contemporary cities are governed, and most recently the notion of smart cities. A related project is documenting the new forms of autonomous mobility that are being forged in cities, and in particular car sharing and the challenged posed by autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars).

Robyn is well known for her work onsocial and cultural geographies of cities, and in particular suburban homes, neighbourhoods and lives. This includes long term research on the suburbs and homes of Sydney, documented in international journal publications and her co-authored book Home (with Alison Blunt, published by Routledge). This is currently being extended in a project on the ways in which energy transitions are being enacted in commercial office spaces. She conducted Australia’s first qualitative research on car sharing that is being widely cited internationally.

Robyn is a regular reviewer for a wide range of international journals in urban studies, and is currently Co Editor of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers. She has conducted research with a range of external collaborators, principally local governments. She is an enthusiastic mentor of early- and mid-career researchers, and is relishing the opportunity to extend her cross-disciplinary urban engagement at the University, especially with architecture, design, health and engineering.

Teaching and supervision

The development of new researchers through joint and allied research projects characterizes Robyn’s successful record as a PhD supervisor. She welcomes applications from those interested in urban governance, mobilities and climate change.
