My research interests include student geographies, in particular processes of (de-)studentification; geographies of social and population change; rural/urban change, in particular processes of gentrification and urban abandonment and decline; geographies of higher education.

I am currently working on an ORA / ESRC-funded iRGENT (International Rural Gentrification) project, conducting the first in-depth cross-national comparative study of the theory, forms and dynamics of rural gentrification, encompassing France, UK and USA.
