PhD student


Andrew is an urban geographer with interests in urban change and renewal, especially the way in which underrepresented and marginalised populations engage with said change and renewal. His MSc thesis assessed if it was possible to manage the effects of gentrification and if regeneration and urban renewal schemes can be socially sustainable, with a case study of the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.

Andrew also has interests in geographies of health and how the city impacts on the health and wellbeing of non-heteronormative populations. His BA thesis quantified the perception of risk of queer spaces within London and how this impacted on the sexual activity of men who have sex with men (MSM).

Andrew became a PhD Researcher at King's College London in 2020, having completed his BA in Geography and MSc in Sustainable Cities at King's in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Since 2014 he has held a number of project and programme manager positions within the public health, equality, diversity and inclusion, community engagement and development, and, most recently, regeneration and inclusive growth sectors.
