I am a Research Fellow with the Centre for GeoInformatics at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. My research interests span a wide range of topics in urban and regional analysis, with a focus on spatial-temporal dynamics, complexity, and spatial interaction. My previous PhD research examined the impact of commuting flows on the formation of local labour markets, and highlighted the necessity of considering commuting within the context of local labour market spatial structure. My current and future research interests fall under the general banner of `complexity in urban systems’ and encompass interdisciplinary research into topics such as emergence and the multi-scale nature of commuting, the dynamics of housing markets, transportation modelling, as well as more social concepts, such as visible expressions of homelessness and local labour markets. I am particularly interested in movements and flows of individuals, information, and commodities within urban environments, as well as the development and implementation of novel spatial analysis methods and software aimed at characterizing these flows.
