Over the last 15 years Rebecca has worked on a range of projects in a variety of roles for clients including Communities and Local Government (CLG), the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), the Nuffield Foundation, the Housing Corporation, the Homes and Communities Agency, the Tenant Services Authority, the National Housing Federation, the Scottish Government, individual social landlords and others. Rebecca's research interests and expertise are wide-ranging - across housing studies, social policy, and applied social research. Her principal areas of work have been social housing, neighbourhoods, and inequality, which since 2001 have been pursued as a member of LSE’s ESRC Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and from 2003 as a fellow of the Brookings Institution in Washington DC. This expertise has been recognised in numerous invitations to speak and to perform academic and policy advisory roles, for example for CLG and JRF. She joins NPI as an Associate to bring this expertise to our work developing out of the Covid19 pandemic.
