Delloye

Urban and Regional Scientist

I am a geographer fascinated by the quantitative modelling of migrations, land-use and transport systems, at both urban and regional scales. My research interests lie at the crossroad of classic theories of  economics or geography and modern concepts and methods of complex systems.

“Geographers who find it worthwhile to develop pure theory with extensive use of mathematics and to engage in the construction of large-scale models with considerable analytical content and employing extensive sets of data.”

Walter Isard, 1975

Dissertation award !

In November 2018, I felt honoured to be awarded the PhD dissertation prize from the Regional Science Association International (RSAI). This great news was announced in San Antonio, Texas, during the 65th North American Regional Science Meeting. Regional science is an interdisciplinary field concerned with theory, method, and application of regional, urban and rural, geographic and spatial investigations and analyses. It is also a vibrant and welcoming research community that inspires me a lot, which I why this acknowledgement really means something to me.
