Departmental Lecturer in Quantitative Methods


Mark is a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson and a Departmental Lecturer in Quantitative Methods at the Department of Social Policy & Intervention. He teaches quantitative methods for the MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention & Policy Evaluation and convenes the department’s Methods Hub for DPhil students. Mark’s research interests are in spatial economic inequality, its measurement, causes and consequences; the social and economic policies that aim to address these inequalities; and the spatial impact of public policy that is ‘place blind’ but nonetheless has uneven geographic effects. He also has interests in population geography and the methods used in the production of official demographic statistics. Mark is also a Visiting Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute (III) of the London School of Economics & Political Science. He acts as an advisor to the Office for National Statistics on the UK Population Theme Advisory Board and the Government Statistical Service Migration Expert Group.
