About the Project
This studentship seeks to investigate how disruptive trends are affecting urban commercial real estate markets to fundamentally determine the long term implications for commercial property of the spatial impact of disruptive change occurring in commercial real estate markets.
This PhD studentship should be of interest to those who are passionate about sustainable urban development, more sustainable and resilient town and city centres, and those energised by using data to reveal how those who construct the urban built environment interact with those who use it.
This project is supervised by Professor Paul Greenhalgh.
