The project focuses on the feedback mechanisms between residential and school choices of parents.We aim to understand how residential choices driven by school preferences/choices given the residential choices affect school segregation in Sweden.
Our research on urban scaling, published in Science Advances, calls into question an influential theory of the self-reinforcing dynamics of city growth. We show that big cities feed on their hinterlands to sustain growth.
We investigate candidates in municipal elections in Sweden to learn about how ethnic preferences shape residential choices and whether growth in numbers can be attributed to exposure to diversifying neighbourhoods.
