Professor John Sturzaker

School of Life and Medical Sciences (University of Hertfordshire)

I am Ebenezer Howard Professor of Planning at the University of Hertfordshire.

I have had a varied career as a planner in both practice and research, and am keen to bring both areas closer together. I try to work across disciplinary boundaries, with the ultimate aim of improving people's lives by contributing to planning and development policy and practice. I am particularly interested in how cities grow in more "sustainable" ways, with an understanding of sustainability that considers all those involved, including those with less power and influence in the planning and development systems.
