Jordan is a writer, curator and researcher on urban culture, nights, heritage and identities. He is the Centre Manager of UCL Urban Laboratory, a cross-disciplinary research centre for the study of cities and urbanisation, and project coordinator for the European Research Council grant ‘Making Africa Urban’, led by Prof Jennifer Robinson. Between October 2020 and March 2021, he is on an internal secondment within the Office of the President and Provost (Equality, Diversity & Inclusion) to research and produce a Race Equality Implementation Plan for the university, bringing together recommendations made from the institution’s Inquiry on Eugenics, Race Equality Charter submissions and Town Hall on Race.

He has been a regular contributor to talks, panels, roundtables and crits on the creative city, situated practice, night spaces, gentrification, the urban essay film, and queer urbanisms, and is also a Young Urbanist at The Academy of Urbanism and a member of the International Night Studies Network.

At UCL he is the point of contact for the Urban Laboratory, project managing activities in coordination with the Director and Co-Directors, maintains and fosters new collaborations and partnerships, and is head of the Lab's communication.

A UCL graduate with a background in History and Urban Studies, he has presented, chaired panels and been an invited contributor to events and workshops on a range of themes. Originating from work undertaken on modernist housing estates, using inter-war Berlin as a case study, his current interest focuses on city museums and their relationship to and engagement with the contemporary city.
