Urban geographers are fortunate because we can observe the different patterns and processes which we study and research in our daily lives. I believe you can learn a lot about a city by walking around it and speaking to people who live there.
My current research involves examining the experiences of living through gentrification, the differences between gentrification in cities with different economic structures, the visions behind waterfront regeneration and flagships and understanding the key issues surrounding shrinking cities such as Detroit.
I am always looking for motivated, hard working and passionate master's students to develop ideas and work together. If you are interested in researching any of these themes, do not hesitate to get in touch.
