Research Group: Population, Health and Wellbeing (PHeW)

Currently Active: 

We combine expertise in population, health and wellbeing with the application of technical excellence in geographic information systems (GIS), spatial analysis and qualitative methods. The group has attracted significant support from the UK Research Councils and international charities. Members have ongoing advisory roles with UK and overseas governments as well as international agencies. The renowned WorldPop Team is part of PheW.
