Hi I’m Adam Dennett, I’m a post-doctoral research associate in the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), and the Department for Information Studies, University College London. At present I work across a variety of projects: I am lead researcher on the migration stream of the Explaining, Modelling & Forecasting Global Dynamics (ENFOLD-ing) project; Research Associate for the Census Support Flow Data Service, and a researcher / user support officer for the Centre for Longitudinal Study Information and User Support (CeLSIUS).
My research interests, until now, have principally been in the quantitative analysis of internal migration in the UK, however I am interested in all areas of population geography and demography – particularly the application of statistical, mathematical and GIS techniques in the understanding human spatial patterns and processes.
My PhD thesis – completed whilst based in the School of Geography, University of Leeds - was on understanding internal migration in Britain at the start of the 21st Century. Part of this work involved developing a national geodemographic area classification based on the characteristics of migrants and migration flows; a classification which has used as a framework for monitoring changes in the patterns of internal migration in Britain between censuses.
