Postdoctoral Researcher

My research is centred on themes including housing (particularly the private rented sector and Housing in Multiple Occupation), studentification, internal/international migration, social inequality and segregation, welfare reform, demographic change and lifecourse progression. My work is interdisciplinary, drawing on housing theory, migration studies, population geography and social geography. My PhD was a mixed-methods study exploring diverse geographies of Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMO) in England.
