Professor & Research Chair in Inclusive Societies at University of Sheffield

I am Research Chair in Inclusive Societies at the University of Sheffield. My main expertise lies around social inequalities and problems in cities, housing issues and crime. I was the first Director of the Research Centre for Social Sciences at the University of York where I was also Reader in Urban Studies and Criminology. Before that I directed the Housing and Community Research Unit at the University of Tasmania (Australia) and cut my teeth in urban and housing research at the University of Glasgow's Department of Urban Studies.
