Sue is a highly experienced quantitative researcher with expertise in modelling using both GIS and advanced statistical methods such as multilevel and longitudinal modelling. She is deeply committed to the research of social and spatial inequalities. Since completing her PhD in Geography at the University of Sheffield (2010), she has researched: sociospatial variation in children’s access to the best schools, home-owner out-migration linked to ethnic “other” inmigration in Glasgow, and an intervention directed at improving rates of breastfeeding primarily in deprived areas. In her previous work life Sue worked in social housing and homelessness as well as the NHS for over a decade prior to undertaking an MA in Social Policy and Research Methods at the University of York (in 2000). Sue is from Southall, a diverse multicultural community in West London.
