Research interests

My research draws on geographical theory and ‘quantitative social science’ methods to address contemporary challenges in urban and regional development. My experience in planning and geography, as well as data and programming, enables me to translate concepts and applications across disciplinary boundaries while paying attention to the details of data, method, and context. 

Thematic Research Areas

  • Theme 1: Smart Cities & ‘Big Data’ – I work with event data from urban infrastructures to understand human behaviour, contextualising these insights as part of planning and governance.
  • Theme 2: Economic Geography – I focus on ‘knowledge economy’, and the interactions between individuals and organisations, to understand the developmental trajectories of cities.
  • Theme 3: Housing – I am interested in quantitative and computational approaches to understanding the relationship of housing to tenure and demography.

Methodological Research Areas

  • Theme 4: From Open Data to Open Teaching & Reproducible Research – I am interested in how open data and tools (both new and old) create opportunities for more robust, replicable and accessible teaching and research.
  • Theme 5: Emerging & Overlooked Quantiative Methods – I seek to understand the implications of machine learning and older analytical approaches for high-dimensional human and environmental geodata.
