Willing to supervise doctoral students
I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students who are interested in issues with regard to regional economic development, skills, future of work, labour markets, new working spaces, globalisation, and place-based industrial strategy.
I am particularly interested in proposals that aim to uncover new insights in these areas through empirical investigation (via quantitative approaches) aiming to provide lessons for both industrial and public policy.
Amongst others, the following are indicativeof the types of projects, I would be interested in supporting:
- Proposals seeking to analyse industrial policy design and evaluation covering different theoretical and empirical perspectives on new working spaces, such as coworking spaces and maker spaces, in peripheral economies.
- Proposals exploring socio-economic ecosystems in peripheral areas located in advanced economies in order to evaluate how the presence of new working spaces may sustain an inclusive development and competitiveness in peripheral areas.
- Proposal investigating how new working spaces may foster urban (re)generation and encourage migration process of knowledge workers in peripheral areas.
- Proposals seeking to identify and evaluate place-sensitive planning measures on how new working spaces can drive of the economic change in the periphery.
