Rhiannon Pugh

Senior Lecturer


My research interests include: regional economic development; economic geographies of weaker, post-industrial and peripheral regions; the roles of universities in regional development; gender perspectives within economic geography.

I am currently working on a three year project funded by the research agency FORMAS studying innovation policy in the far northern peripheries of Sweden and Scotland. This project aims to explore the barriers and opportunities to enhance sustainable and inclusive economic development through innovation in peripheral areas, and also to enhannce our understanding of such regions within economic geography. 

I am handling editor of the early career section of the journal Regional Studies, Regional Science and co co-ordinator of the research network on gender and regional studies, funded by the Regional Studies Association
