Clive Sabel, PhDProfessor in Quantitative Geography, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol
Following a BSc (Hons) in Geography from Lancaster in 1990 and an MSc in GIS from Edinburgh University in 1991, I took a few years off to travel to many interesting and far flung places.
I returned in 1996, and completed my PhD in 1999 under Profs Tony Gatrell and Robin Flowerdew at Lancaster University, using an Exploratory Spatial Data Analysis approach to investigate Spatial and Temporal relationships between environmental exposure and health.
I did postdocs at St Andrews University with Prof Paul Boyle and then at Karolinska University in Sweden, before accepting a lectureship at University of Canterbury, New Zealand in 2004. I returned to the UK in 2007 to join Imperial College London’s Dept of Epidemiology and Public Health but came back to Geography’s fold in 2009 to become Associate Prof (and then Prof) at University of Exeter. In Sept 2013, I joined Bristol University as Professor in Quantitative Geography.
