Interest and/or practice of interdisciplinarity: 

My background is in geography and sociology, and I completed my PhD at the LSE’s Cities Programme where the central objective is to relate physical structure to the social structure of cities.  My own research coalesces around the theme of urban life. In particular, I am interested in the relationship between built form in cities (architecture/planning) and social practices (urban sociology/geography), and my published research to date has centred on public space, public transport and the ways that citizenship is experienced in urban settings. Methodologically I am interested in the use of qualitative research methods and that the ways that the application of these methods (and others) across disciplines can be synthesised.  This is also reflected in my teaching, and I contribute to the teaching of a range of methodological modules (research design, qualitative methods, ethnography) to students from a diverse range of disciplines across the LSE.
