A professor at the University of East London has been appointed as a specialist advisor to the House of Lords Select Committee on Olympic and Paralympic Legacy.
Professor Alan Brimicombe will advice the committee, which was set up in May to consider strategic issues for regeneration and sporting legacy on the back of the London 2012 Games.
Last year Professor Brimicombe was commissioned to lead a research project into the impact of the Games on behalf of the International Olympic Committee - the first of its kind for a summer Games.
Professor Brimicombe said: “I’m honoured the House of Lords has appointed me. I look forward to drawing on my experience and research in this area, and helping Whitehall in its effort to build on the legacy of last summer’s Olympic Games.”
Professor Brimicombe is the Head of the Centre for Geo-Information Studies at UEL.
He is also a chartered geographer and is active in the Royal Geographical Society, British Society of Criminology, Royal Statistical Society and is an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences.
