Research overview

My research focuses on the way in which demographic behaviour changes over time and how people interact with the areas in which they live and work. Much of my work focuses on the dynamic processes involved in migration but I am interested in the social implications of changing demographic composition: household formation, social exclusion and population ageing for example. Areas are shaped by changing economic conditions, policy interventions and social attitudes, which in turn has an impact on demographic behaviour. Modelling and explaining these complex interaction is key to the work which I do.
