In 2012, he co-founded the World Institute of Sustainable Development in Kochi, India.

He is a tenured associate professor of Urban and regional planning at the University of Iowa, where he has been employed since earning his Ph.D. from Florida State University in 2000.

He has been named an Excellent Educator by the American Planning Association, one of only two professors ever to be bestowed this recognition in the state of Iowa.
