Paul Raven


Research interest: Making infrastructure legible

Paul Graham Raven is an EPSRC-supported interdisciplinary postgraduate researcher in infrastructure futures and theory, with connections to both Town & Regional Planning and Civil & Structural Engineering. His PhD research seeks to understand the constitutional and configurational dynamics of structuration and transitions in metasystemic infrastructure - or, more simply, how we ended up with the infrastructure we have, and how we might shape the infrastructure we've yet to build.

Paul is also a published science fiction writer and literary critic, occasional essayist and consulting critical futurist. He lives not far from the site of the Battle of Orgreave with a cat and some guitars.
