Dr Taylor’s research explores the intersections of housing markets and urban planning, focusing on patterns of planning system conflict.
Urban planning; land-use planning and conflicts; affordable housing; property rights.
Her research reaches across housing, transport and planning and it provided her with a platform to investigate the pivotal role of car parking and its links with housing affordability and planning conflict. Her research continues to look into understanding planning contestation and the broader repercussions of parking as an unnoticed but ubiquitous use of land.
She has collaborated effectively with Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) researchers from the University of Tasmania on indigenous housing issues. In addition she collaborated on housing and planning topics with peers and senior researchers from The University of Reading (UK), The University of Melbourne, and Curtin University.
Dr Taylor was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies.
