About the hosts
Portret Andrea Morrison

Andrea Morrison (PhD) is Associate Professor of Economic Geography at Utrecht University and Head of the research programme Economic Urban Transitions at the Department of Human Geography. Andrea’s research interests lie in the field of evolutionary economic geography, with particular attention to the dynamics of industrial clusters. This research aims at understanding why some places are more successful than others in attracting and generating innovation and knowledge and how policy can deliver solutions to spur laggard places to catch up with the leaders. His scientific work has been published in leading international journals, such as Regional Studies, Journal of Evolutionary Economics, Research Policy and World Development.

Bianca Wildish is a second year student of the Urban and Economic Geography Research Master.  Born and raised in New Zealand, Bianca is a Kiwi girl with Dutch heritage who came to the Netherlands to get in touch with her roots and pursue her research career.  The Research Masters programme is equipping her with a broad range of qualitative and quantitative research skills as well as knowledge and perspectives in the human geography field. She is working on her master thesis which combines her key interests of urban tourism, peer-to-peer accommodation and the notion of feeling at home to investigate neighbourhood experience in light of the proliferation of Airbnb in Amsterdam.
