About me & my work:

I am a British psychiatrist and public health specialist. My main interest is in making cities better for health. I run the Centre for Urban Design and Mental Health, a global think tank that examines how architects, urban planners and others can design and build better mental health into cities. I also work at the World Bank, Georgetown University (US), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (UK) and Tokyo Medical and Dental University (Japan). In my spare time I run a storytelling/sleuthing show called Perfect Liars Club.

My links:

Centre for Urban Design and Mental Health | I am the founder and director of this global think tank that examines how architects, urban planners and others can build better mental health into the city.

Perfect Liars Club | I am the founder and MC of this storytelling show where four suspects tell outlandish tales, of which three are absolutely true and one is a lie - will the audience be shrewd enough to catch the liar?
