Dr Stephen Hincks

Stephen's research covers two broad themes. The first theme focuses on conceptualising, measuring and analysing the dynamics of spatial development. This area of research involves developing and applying different analytical frameworks and methodologies to understand complex spatial structures and processes.  This has included research on housing and labour market interaction; changing housing and neighbourhood interactions; the measurement of spatial planning outcomes; neighbourhood change; migration in Europe; and spatial housing market analysis.
