I am an Associate Professor of Urban regeneration at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment.

My current research is focused on urban regeneration, long-term social mobility and how both are affected by the crisis. I am also leading a three-year study on the role of community enterprises in the context of government retrenchment from urban regeneration, and the changing relationships between citizens and governments.

My newest research fascination is the potential of social media, virtual platforms and mobile technology to foster citizens' engagement and participation in neighbourhood governance.

I teach master courses in urban geography and strategies of urban regeneration. I am a regular invited speaker for professionals working in housing associations and local and national government officials.
