Research Summary

Tim's research largely focuses on questions of regeneration, gentrification and displacement with a particular interest in how the application of southern-theory (and practice) might create space for new readings of (and modes of intervention in) northern cities.


In addition, Tim has also collaborated on research projects related to such issues and the urbanisation of Mediterranean migration, youth engagement in planning and the transformative potential of social impact assessment in planning. He is currently involved in a comparative research project looking into forms, drivers and resistances to urban displacement and displaceability.
