Clara Peiret-García

PhD Researcher

Newcastle University

I am a PhD researcher at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Geospatial Systems in Newcastle University (UK). I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Master’s in Regional and Local Economic Development and Planning from Universidad de Valladolid, and a Master’s in Geospatial Data Science (Newcastle University).

Before starting my PhD I worked as a Research Assistant on projects in Spain and the UK. These projects delved into the causal effects of planning policies on crime evolution in British cities and the impact of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals on management policies.

My current research centers on spatial data science, urban inequalities, and urban morphology. Specifically, I am focused on developing novel methods to quantify accessibility to urban amenities from the diverse perspectives of city residents, rather than just the average individual. Additionally, I am exploring the role that urban morphology plays in facilitating access to opportunities.

In my free time I enjoy reading -particularly fiction and politics-, going to the cinema, and cooking. You will also find me practicing team sports or going on hikes.
