I am a quantitative and computational researcher and am particularly passionate about all things spatial economic development, which can be any combination of the three words: spatial economics, spatial int. development, and economic development. I currently work with Neave O'Clery under the Oxford Martin School programme on Informal Cities.
I have previously worked as Ass. Prof. at the University of Groningen/The Netherlands and hold a PhD (Civil and Environmental Engineering) from Imperial College London, a MSc (Economics) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a MA (Economics and Finance) from the University of Aberdeen.
