Research Groups
Research Summary
My main research interests include environmental sociology, spatial demography and quantitative methods. In my previous work, I have analysed the spatial distribution of air pollution, the disproportionate exposure of ethnic minorities, and selective migration patterns. More broadly, I am interested in how environmental conditions and space influence peoples behaviour. 

One of my current projects investigates the effect of experiencing extreme weather events on environmental attitudes and behaviour. In another project, I am using machine learning methods to analyse internal migration trajectories and neighbourhood attainment of immigrant minorities in England. Methodologically, I am mainly interested in quantitative methods for spatial and longitudinal data as well as in computational methods - especially in the field of causal inference.

Teaching Summary
My previous teaching portfolio has two main theoretical focuses: a) experimental and quasi-experimental studies in the social sciences, and b) urban sociology and spatial inequalities. Methodologically, my previous courses have focused on the practical application of quantitative methods for observational data.
