Profile Summary

1) Urban and Regional policy

Simon is interested in the changing role of urban and regional policy and governance and how national government has reconfigured relations with different territories within the UK. This has focused on the parallel strategies of devolution in the devolved administrations; the reprioritisation of London and the Greater South East within national and regional priorities; and attempts to develop a governance fix for the rest of England. Research work has particularly focused on three sets of issues. First, an attempt to understand different experiments with governance fixes in northern England focusing in particular on Elected Regional Assemblies, City-regions and the Northern Way. Second, understanding the process and consequences of the prioritisation of London and the Greater south east as the exemplary city. Third, understanding how the urban, city-regional and regional policy agendas are understood by Government departments within Whitehall, regions and cities. This work has been undertaken through placements and projects funded by national govt, core cities, and research councils.

2) Cities, Climate change and managed transitions in urban infrastructure (transport, waste, energy, water and flooding)

This work seeks to understand how cities respond to climate change and resource constraint and the types of programmatic changes they develop within their urban infrastructure systems. This work focuses on understanding how global cities in particularly London, New York, San Francisco and Shanghai are producers of new infrastructure strategies. These are oriented around three sets of strategies - strategic protection of cities from climate change and resource constraint; the development of localised infrastructure using decentralisation energy and local water sources and withdrawing from reliance on distant infrastructures; third cities collaborating in the development of new infrastructure solutions such as collective energy savings and new energy sources such as biomass and hydrogen. Expertise within this area has led to me acting as a national and international expert on changing relations between neighbourhoods, cities, regions and infrastructure networks in a period of climate change and resource constraint.

3) Cities and Energy Policy - Hydrogen Energy and Renewable Energy Technologies

This final set of interests relates to the above and is continuing development of intellectual interests relating to multidisciplinary analysis of the challenges for cities and regions in innovating with hydrogen and renewable energy technologies, and reshaping the social and technical organisation of cities energy systems. This work has been undertaken in a national and international context.
