Professor Christina Beatty BSc (Hons), Mphil | Professor of Applied Economic Geography | Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research | Sheffield Hallam University
Back by popular demand! Professor Beatty was a speaker at last year’s Summit, and we are delighted to welcome her back as a Panellist to offer her insights and perceptions at this year’s event. Professor Beatty has over 25 years of experience in undertaking applied policy and evidenced based research. During that time, she has managed many national research and evaluation projects utilising large scale data intensive and mixed method approaches to understand the spatial impacts of policy initiatives. She is especially interested in the intersection of welfare reform, labour market policy, housing policy and regeneration policy, and how this relates to the underpinning regional and local economic geography of Britain. Her work often highlights the uneven impact of policy decisions and how this can result in unintended consequences in different types of places across Britain.
