About me

Peter Matthews (he/him) is a Senior Lecturer in Social Policy. I joined Stirling in 2014 from Heriot-Watt. I completed my doctoral research in 2009, being awarded a PhD in Urban Studies from the University of Glasgow.

Throughout my research career I have had a particular interest in urban policy; urban regeneration; urban inequalities; housing; equalities and diversity; queer theory and lesbian and gay studies. My first degree was in History, and I have been involved in a number of interdisciplinary research projects, and find working at disciplinary interfaces productive and rewarding.

I have supervised four PhDs in my research areas to completion, and welcome enquiries from possible doctoral researchers with interest in these topics.
