Short Biography

I joined AQMeN in 2015 as a PhD student at the Urban Segregation and Inequality strand. My work focuses on the accessibility of local services in Scotland, examining their link to social capital. I use quantitative methods to initially construct measures of neighbourhood composition in order to examine spatial inequalities in service access and social capital. These measures include deprivation as well as social mix.
My further interests include neighbourhood effects, community, deprivation and poverty, and socioeconomic inequalities.
I have previously obtained an MRes in Urban Research (University of Glasgow) and a B.Soc.Sci. in Sociology from the University of Turku.
