The research section Urban Geography investigates how life trajectories and daily activities are influenced by the urban environment, what consequences this has for individual behaviour, e.g. in the domains of travel, leisure, consumption, social interaction, and physical activity and how this is associated with important outcomes such as health, well-being, and inclusion. We also study how such behaviours and their consequences shape urban public spaces and neighbourhoods, and affect meso and macro outcomes, such as spatial inequalities. These relationships are investigated at various spatial and temporal scales and levels of aggregation and with great variety of data and social scientific methods.
