I am a researcher at the Department of Urban Studies and planning, University of Sheffield. My current research focuses on the production of the deprivation indices that explicitly accounts for the local spatial context within which individuals are embedded and forms part of their spatial opportunity structure.
My general research interests include GIS spatial analysis, inequality, urban policy, housing and real estate markets. I spend most of my time producing lots of maps, charts and stats relating to various socioeconomic and environmental issues. Occasionally I get involved with the teaching applied GIS techniques to students on GIS courses within Department of Urban Studies and Planning, University of Sheffield.
I am currently in the final stages of my PhD in Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Sheffield. I have an MSc in Real Estate Finance from The University of Aberdeen and BSc (Hons) from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
