Rachel Homer


I joined the School of Geography in February 2002.

I worked in several blue chip companies, including Cadbury, Schweppes, Bupa, Yellow Pages , BT and Orange. I ran Market Research departments, led Strategic Review teams and implemented major change programmes.

A career change led to teaching maths in the FE sector. My students achieved at GCSE, A level, BTEC National and BTEC HNC.


Research interests

I am interested in analysing large data sets and where possible tracking movements over time. I have worked on projects accross the whole spectrum of Geography from analysing the output and remote sensing to large consumer Market Research studies.
