Our Research Themes

Urbanisation

We use computational tools to investigate how the intersection of infrastructure, governance and networked flows shape the socio-economic dynamics of urban regions.

Inequalities

We design computational tools to understand the drivers of social, environmental and economic inequalities in urban regions around the world.

Citizen Participation

We use participatory methods to engage stakeholders, including citizens, in co-creating socially resilient communites for knowledge and impact driven decision-making.
