Research overview

I am currently working on several research projects:

  • Within the ESRC Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity I am leading the development of a new national survey to document the lives of ethnic and religious minorities in a time of crisis (2020-2021). This is a collaboration with collagues at the Universities of Manchester and Sussex, Words of Colour, Ipsos MORI and a number of Voluntary and Community Partners.
  • As part of the ESRC Centre for Population Change I am leading a project examining changes in the residential mobility experiences of young adults (2020-2022). On this project I work with Vivian So, David McCollum and Hill Kulu.
  • As Chair of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Population Geography Research Group I am leading the 'Archiving Population Geography' project to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the group (2019-2022).
  • With Helen Packwood (Edinburgh), I am writing a text book on Mixed Methods in Social Sciences (to be available from Palgrave Macmillan, 2022).
  • As an International Collaborator on the ERC MyMove Project (PI Helga de Valk) I am working with Julia Mikolai and Michaela Kyclova to write a book chapter on the residential mobility of children of immigrants.
