Professor Stefan Bouzarovski
Professor of Human Geography and Director of the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy.
My research interests are based in:
- human geography, particularly social and political geography;
- social environmental science;
- political ecology;
- urban planning;
- development; and
- welfare economics.
Within these domains, my scholarship has mainly focused on the socio-technical, economic and political dynamics in the rise of energy poverty in developed and developing countries alike.
A distinct strand of my scholarship has scrutinised the geopolitics of energy, with a particular emphasis on the regulation of hydrocarbon flows via infrastructure and territory. I have also been interested in scientific efforts to unpack the manner in which household everyday practices are interwoven with the built fabric of inner-city areas.
Underpinning much of this work is a desire to develop innovative methods for conceptualizing and representing space and territory. I have coordinated (and currently coordinate) 36 research projects on these topics, while authoring more than 70 peer-reviewed publications.
