Congratulations to Zahratu Shabrina @zarashabrina, who passed her PhD viva on Thursday 12 December. Her thesis is on assessing the impact of new digital platforms on the structure and form of cities, using the example of Airbnb in London. She applied various diversity measures, linear regression modelling and rent-based spatial interaction models to figure out the impact on the spatial structure of the housing market. Her #Bartlett #PhD profile is here: ucl.ac.uk/bartlett/casa/.

Zahra said: "Greatest appreciations to the most amazing supervisors Michael Battya and Elsa Arcaute - thanks for being such supportive and caring mentors! Also to my examiners - Chris Brunsdon and Paul Longley for such insightful feedbacks."

Her supervisor, Elsa, tweeted: "Many congratulations!!!! Excellent researcher, always eager to learn and implement very nice vizs! It’s been a great pleasure! All the best and enjoy a well-deserved rest!"

Congratulations again from all of us at CASA.
