A professor at the University of Glasgow, Ken has a lifelong passion for the housing sector, with a specific interest in research via his work directing the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE).
Apart from academic work focused on housing economics and analysis of housing policy, Ken has recently shifted to climate change research relating to the retrofit of the existing housing stock. Current projects include evaluation of tenement EnerPHit retrofit, research on the market for air source heat pumps, and analysis regarding regulatory requirements to improve EPC ratings in the private rental market.
