Dr Lauren Andres secures research funding for two projects

27 January 2022

Dr Lauren Andres has been successful in securing research funding for two new exciting projects.

PANEX-YOUTH - Adaptations of young people in monetary-poor households for surviving and recovering from COVID-19 and associated lockdowns:

Part of the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR) Call, funded conjointly by the ESRC, the NRF and FAPESP. This two-year project aims to understand and assess the impact of COVID-19 and associated policies on food, education, play/leisure of young people (10–24) living in deprived settings and in conditions of ‘poverty’  in the UK, Brazil and South Africa. While the UK Team will involve BSP's Dr Lauren Andres (PI) and Peter Kraftl (UoB- Co-I), it will also comprise over 10 researchers from the University of the Free State (South Africa) and the University of São Paulo. 

Everyday Practices and Temporalities: Safety, Inclusion and Access in 24-hour Delhi - MFIRP joint research call between UCL and IITD

Lauren Andres and Surajit Chakravarty (IITD) have secured some internal funding for a scoping study which will be the first to analyze everyday rhythms and temporalities and their implications for making Delhi a 24-hour city. The project aims to:

  • document everyday rhythms and temporalities across socio-economic classes, gender, age groups, and abilities, 
  • analyze their spatial implications,
  • make recommendations on safety, inclusion and access, and the use of appropriate technologies, and (iv) add empirical evidence to the discourse on temporalities in urban planning.
