Professor Jonathan Corcoran was elected in November 2023 as a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia (ASSA) based on his distinguished contributions to the field of Human Geography and to the understanding of the spatial dimensions of key social phenomena. 

The ASSA is an independent, interdisciplinary body of elected Fellows including Australia’s leading researchers and practitioners across the breadth of social science disciplines. Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences is an honour conferred for scholarly distinction in research and the advancement of social sciences. Fellows are elected to the Academy annually by their peers through a rigorous selection process.

Jonathan is a professor within the School of the Environment, researcher in the Queensland Centre for Population Research and Deputy Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Science, at The University of Queensland. He is an RGSQ member and former Councillor and continues to contribute as a member on the Society’s Publications committee. Jonathan’s research is focussed on understanding the spatial dimensions of key social phenomena that he approaches with a quantitative focus drawing on expertise in spatial modelling and mobility research. His work includes the spatial dimensions of crime, fire, and social disadvantage, and on human spatial behaviour, including tourist movements, commuting, and graduate migration.

Congratulations, Jonathan!
