Personal profile

 

Rachel joined Leicester Castle Business School in 2016. Rachel specialises in urban economies and her main interests are in the economic geography of creative cities and in urban economic development.  In particular, she is interested in the role of networks in developing knowledge transfer and innovation in cities, in new business models and techniques for creative and digital industries, and the role of cities as a catalyst for creative, knowledge, and smart industrial growth.

Rachel has worked previously with Creative Scotland, the Western Ireland Development Commission, Province of British Columbia, individual theatre companies, regional development agencies, and several London boroughs to examine value impacts of creative and digital sectors, creative workers, and value chains. Rachel’s work on developing new techniques in ‘spatial-relational mapping’ of creative work has led to new economic approaches and software development, whilst her current work on ‘valorising hidden culture’ and ‘smartifying economic development’ is leading to new practice models in local authorities and new smart city strategies. Rachel works closely with Leicester’s Cultural Quarter and Leicester City Council, is a board member on several creative and economic projects in the East and West Midlands, and holds several editorial and academic positions on journals, research councils, and research networks. Rachel is director of De Montfort University’s Creative and Cultural Industries Research Group, site director for the Midlands 4 Cities DTP, and board member for DMU’s Promoting Our City, Smart City, and Creative Talent Plan Boards .  

 

Rachel welcomes PhD enquiries in the following areas:

  • Creative and Smart Cities
  • Cultural Values and Valorisation Models
  • Economic and Social Impact of Cultural and Creative Industries
  • Knowledge Transfer and Innovation
  • City Innovation and Learning Labs
