Research overview

My research interests include: urban poverty analysis; ecosystem services/disservices-urban poverty linkages; climate change adaptation; and human settlement design and planning; and informal land and rental markets. In the pursuit of policy relevant findings, I apply novel interdisciplinary methods combining technical analysis (e.g. architectural and planning, spatial analysis and modelling) with a social (e.g. livelihoods, wellbeing) and political (governance, institutional) analysis. My research sponsors include: Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) - a NERC-ESRC-DFID joint programme; ESRC-DFID Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation research programmes; and EU Framework Programme 7. My research countries include: Bangladesh, India, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
