Prior to this, I held a personal chair and was Professor of Geography at the University of Portsmouth.

I was appointed as a panel member for Geography and Environmantal Studies for two Research Assessment Exercsises.

I have run advanced workshops in multilevel modelling for many years at the University of Essex Summer School and at the Swiss Summer School for Social Science Methods.
