Gideon Abagna Azunre

PhD student, Concordia University

Gideon is an early career researcher whose research sits at the intersection of urban planning/governance, urban informality, and urban poverty. More recently, his research has looked predominantly at spatial informalities (slums/informal settlements) and the quest to improve the living conditions and livelihoods of residents in those settlements. More broadly, he frames his enquiries and analyses around the broader discourse of sustainable city development, particularly the Sustainable Development Goal 11. Geographically speaking, he has worked largely on the sub-Saharan African region with keen attention to Ghana and its rapidly urbanizing cities. He welcomes collaborations on the aforementioned research fields as he looks to learn and broaden his academic and research portfolio.
