Professor Chris Taylor

02920 876938

I am a Professor in the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University.

About my research

I have been researching the geography of education for many years, particularly in relation to school admissions, education markets, and participation in higher education.

I was recently awarded an ESRC (The Economic and Social Research Council) Mid-career Fellowship to develop skills in the spatial analysis of the Millennium Cohort Study. I am also currently leading the independent evaluation of the Foundation Phase for the Welsh Government and working on an ESRC and HEFCW (Higher Education Funding Council for Wales) funded project on widening access to Higher Education.
