Director

Professor Jon Coaffee

Jon Coaffee

I joined the University of Warwick as Professor of Urban Geography in April 2013, and became Director of the Midlands Graduate School ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership in May 2019. Prior to becoming Director, I have been Deputy Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Urban Science and Progress at Warwick (from September 2014).

I am an interdisciplinary scholar based in the Department of Politics and International Studies, with an interest in the interplay of physical, technical and socio-political aspects of urban security and resilience. This work has been supported by a significant number of UK Research Council grants and FP7 and H2020 EU funding linked to building resilience across socio-technical systems and working closely with a range of private and governmental stakeholders to ensure research has real world impact. This work has been published in multiple disciplinary areas and most notably includes a number of books: Terrorism, Risk and the City (Ashgate 2003), The Everyday Resilience of the City (Palgrave 2008), Terrorism, Risk and the Global City – towards urban resilience, (Ashgate 2009), Sustaining and Securing the Olympic City: reconfiguring London for 2012 and beyond (Ashgate, 2011), Urban Resilience: Planning for Risk, Crisis and Uncertainty (Palgrave 2016), the International Resilience Handbook (Routledge, 2016) and Futureproof (Yale University Press, 2019).
