By analysing data and mapping statistics, Maia also provides quantitative research support to help establish robust evidence bases for projects. She is particularly interested in the role of regional initiatives, such as the Northern Powerhouse, in generating sustainable economic growth for areas outside London.

During her year abroad she worked in business development at a start-up studio in Paris and also studied in La Réunion.
