My research focuses on cities and the social dimensions of economic change - at the moment I'm working on inclusive growth, spatial variation in access to finance for innovative or high technology firms, and the impact of personality on economic geography.
I'm also an affiliate of LSE London, the Spatial Economics Research Centre (SERC) and the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE). I've spent time at TCLab at Columbia University. Before this, I was Head of the Socio-Economic Centre at The Work Foundation.
