Research summary

In my research I use computational methods to quantify and analyse the built environment to study how space shapes human behaviour. I am interested in how we can use spatial data science methods to uncover social, economic and spatial inequalities, and how we can use this knowledge to inform evidence-based urban planning and policy-making.

Teaching summary

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with substantial teaching experience as Course Coordinator, Tutor and Teaching Fellow for MSc programmes at UCL. In my teaching, I particularly like to combine a flipped classroom approach with active learning and real-world applications.
