Professor, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby

Welcome to my home page. I am a professor in the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University where I have been for over 20 years. I received my BA from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, MA from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of Washington. I subsequently taught at the Memorial University of Newfoundland for three years before moving to SFU in 1976. My research and teaching interests are in economic geography, especially industrial geography, regional development and the BC forest economy. This home page, which is still under construction, provides information on my recent text book, The Dynamics of Industrial Location: The Factory, the Firm and the Production System (Wiley: Chichester 1997), one of my undergraduate courses that is based on this book (Geography 323), and my research interests, including recent publications and research grants.
