Biography

I am a geospatial scientist with a particular interest in climate change, sustainability, inequalities and citizen science. I mainly use geospatial analytical methods and visualisation tools to understand issues associated with urban sustainability and liveability. At Glasgow, I am situated within the Places and Health Programme in the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit (SPHSU) and I am currently investigating how green spaces can reduce inequalities in mental health and cardiometabolic disease prevention.

Prior to joining Glasgow, I was a Research Fellow in Geospatial Data Science at the Institute for Global Sustainable Development within the University of Warwick, where I worked on a number of projects including the Creating Interfaces and Slum Mapping initiatives. At present, I am a Visiting Research Fellow for the Data and Displacement project within the Department of Politics and International Studies at Warwick. Previous to Warwick, I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Auckland and completed a PhD in Geospatial Science at Newcastle University; an MSc in Water and Environmental Management at Queen Mary University of London and; a BSc in Environmental Science at Queen Mary University of London.

At the centre of my research, I adopt participatory methods to encourage the co-creation of knowledge amongst various stakeholders and civil society members. To enable people-centred approaches within the field of urban science, I use a range of tools such as urban living labs, world cafes, workshops, podcasts, maps, visualisations and animations.
