Biography

Andrew has a PhD from the Martin Centre for Architectural and Urban Studies, University of Cambridge, an RTPI accredited MSc in International Planning from UCL and an MA (Hons) in Geography from the University of St Andrews. Andrew has worked between academia and policy, conducting research at Future Cities Catapult, LSE Cities and the New Local Government Network as well as at the University of Manchester and St Andrews. His main research interests are in urban governance, scale, sustainability, urban heritage and epistemological questions around how we produce knowledge to solve complex urban problems. His PhD research was a mixed-method site-based and policy analysis in East London, unpacking the strategic tensions and competing visions for a ‘sustainable’ future of the city within the parameters of the Localism Act (2011) in the shadow of the Olympic Legacy plan.

Research interests

  • The built environment: particularly the history and theory of urban development from Rome to the 21st century; industrial and modern heritage, urban design, density and housing, infrastructure planning.

 

Methodological interests:

  • Emerging research methods for urban political ecology
  • Emerging research methods for urban practitioners
  • Site-based analysis 
  • Visual and digital methods
  • Policy analysis

 

Theoretical interests:

  • Scale (constructions of the local / regional / national etc.)
  • Political ecology
  • Cultural geographies

Teaching

Spatial Planning Strategies

This MSc module brings together planning theory, contemporary policy, and current themes in planning to enable students to produce an integrated spatial plan for a particular urban area. This course contributes to various RTPI-accredited degree programmes on offer in the School of Social and Political Sciences.

Urban Economy

This undergraduate module brings together urban economics and urban planning theory and looks at how planners have responded to some key challenges posed by economic change in urban areas.
