My research focuses on cities and the social dimensions of economic change - including everything from the economics of the creative industries, the impact of cultural diversity on innovation, and the link between innovation and inequality.
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.
