Richard Webber is the originator of the UK-based geodemographic classifications, Acorn and Mosaic, and for many years managed the micro-marketing divisions of first CACI and then Experian.
He has held Visiting Professorships at both UCL and Kings College before joining Newcastle in the same capacity.
He has worked with a wide range of academic colleagues from across the social science in order to apply the insights gained from geodemographics to a wide range of research topics many of which pertain to ongoing debates in demography, geography, politics, sociology and urban studies.
