Personal profile

Research interests

I trained as a social geographer looking at the application of spatial statistics and geodemographics in marketing, public policy and urban geography. More recent work has been in the geographies of education and learning, focusing on choice and markets in educational systems, measures of social segregation and of ethnic polarisation, ways to support the transition of pupils from primary to secondary schools, and on supporting quantitative and statistical literacy amongst geographers and undergraduate social scientists. I am also a licensed lay minister in the Church of England so have some theological interests too.
