Dr Les Dolega

Lecturer Geography and Planning


    Personal Statement

    I am interested in and my expertise is in economic/retail geography and GIS, in particular the performance of town centres and their evolutionary trajectories. I did my PhD at Southampton University between 2009 and 2012; I investigated the impact of the 2008-09 economic crisis on UK town centres and high streets. At the University of Liverpool I worked on 'e-Resilience' project which investigated the vulnerability of British town/retail centres to the impacts of internet sales. Currently, I am working on automated delineation of town centre boundaries and a dynamic and multidimensional classification of retail and consumption spaces in the UK.
