Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research



Dr Richmond Juvenile Ehwi joined the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research in October 2019 as Research Associate on a £72 million project funded by UKRI through the Construction Innovation Hub and the Centre for Digital Built Britain, to transform how the built environment in the UK is designed, built, operated, and managed. As part of this large project, Dr Ehwi led three strands of research which focused on: citizen engagement in smart city and digital infrastructure project delivery, the ethics of decision-making in smart city governance and the politics of smart city vertical selection. His current research projects include: The impact of ESGs on the UK’s Housebuilding Industry, COVID-19 and the lived experiences of households in developing countries, and the role of modular homes in tackling homelessness.

Richmond holds a PhD in Land Economy and an MPhil in Planning, Growth and Regeneration both of which he obtained from the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge. He also holds a bachelor's degree in Land Economy from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana.

At the Department of Land Economy in Cambridge, Dr Ehwi delivers undergraduate supervision for papers in both the Tripos (Paper 10 and 17) and the MPhil PGR programme. He also gives guest lectures at seminars across several faculties within the University of Cambridge. His work has been published in several internationally-reputed journals including Urban Studies, Sustainable City and Society, Land Use Policy, Housing Studies, Housing Policy Debate, Urban Affairs, Urban, International Journal of Housing Market and Analysis, the Journal of Housing and the Built Environment and Construction Management and Economics. Richmond is happy to supervise both undergraduate and MPhil dissertations focusing on topics relevant to housing and planning.
