PhD, Social Anthropology
Application of anthropological perspective to contemporary issues - as in cross-disciplinary approaches to development, ethnicity, hiv/aids research
Comparative analysis of parts of cities (europe and africa) as urban systems
Scope for 'informal' economic activity in different types/styles of urban system
Development of new methods for mapping and communicating 'invisible' social process
Following earlier researches in London and Kampala and a recent ESRC-funded project in Turin, ['Host-migrant options in the informal economy'], I am developing models and methods which can be generalized to comparative work elsewhere. The objective is a reliable and user-friendly typology of urban systems. As Research Task Organizer in an EU Network of Excellence program on ‘Sustainability in Diversity” [SUSDIV] contracted 2005-2010, in which UCL Anthropology is a major partner, the typology project moves forward in collaboration with partners and associates in a range of cities.
