Bridget’s research focuses on how to understand the economy in the real world – one which is always changing, never in equilibrium and innovative. This interest has led her into how information is transmitted in market economies to problems of forecasting and how to understand the evolution of cities. Bridget is at present engaged with NESS – Non-Equilibrium Social Science – an EU Co-ordination Programme to bring together social scientists to establish the agenda for future research.
She has also published on the planning system, the role of transport, and cities.  She is currently a member of the Advisory Group to a Brookings study of the role of cities and ‘globally fluent’ metro areas.
