My research focuses on analysing cities from an urban and economic perspective.
My current work as a research associate at CASA deals with inequalities between cities and regions in the United Kingdom with particular interest given to the city of Manchester and clustering of activities of firms.
My doctoral research dealt with Central and Eastern European cities
(Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia,
Slovenia and Romania). I explored their transformation after the fall of
the Berlin Wall in the light of their demographical trajectories and
their interactions in different types of transnational economic networks
(companies, investments, air trasportations, trade).

Natalia Zdanowska is an economist and a geographer. She holds a PhD in Geography from University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and two masters degrees in Applied Economics and in Urban Geography from the same University. Her doctoral research dealt with spatial integration of Central and Eastern
European cities since 1989 in the light of firm, trade and air transportation networks.
She joinded CASA as a research associate in August 2018, working with Dr. Elsa Arcaute and Prof. Michael Batty as part of a multidisciplinary project "The UK Regions Digital Research Facility" funded by the EPSRC. Her work focuses on inequalities between cities and regions in the United Kingdom as a negative consequence of economies of agglomeration. She is investigating the association between these and flows of capital, credit, investment and employment.
