We are very proud of our colleague Justin Delloye, currently a postdoc researcher at LISER, who has just been awarded the 2018 PhD Dissertation prize from the Regional Science Association International (RSAI). This was announced last week at San Antonio, Texas, during the North American Regional Science Meeting. The RSAI prize announcement is here.
Regional science is an interdisciplinary field concerned with theory, method, and application of regional, urban and rural, geographic and spatial investigations and analyses.
In April 2018, Justin defended his thesis entitled “Urban Morphodynamics: Reconciling Location Theory and Complex Systems”. He was supervised by Professor Dominique Peeters and Professor Isabelle Thomas at the Université catholique de Louvain (BE).
The thesis is available here
Congratulations, Justin! Very happy to have you in Luxembourg!
Last year the prize was awarded to Dr Mirjam Schindler from the University of Luxembourg (now at Christchurch, NZ). Luxembourg is definitely the place to be for quantitative geographers and regional scientists!
