Cris Ratti

With years of experience in both the media/publishing and academic worlds, Cris is POP's main academic researcher

Cris gained batchelors’ degrees from both Southampton (BSc Hons Biology) and London (BA History of Art and Architecture) universities and a research doctorate (DPhil Architecture) from Sussex University.

Since 1989 he has also worked in publishing/desk-top publishing, and especially project management, specializing in academic books and journals, including a number of specialist areas in political and international relations, economics/economic geography, biological sciences, building research/urban studies, arts and humanities, and – fortunately for POP – travel guides.

He has also worked successfully as a freelance project manager/editor, over which time he has built up an extensive portfolio of work with a number of national and international publishing companies with offices in the UK, the United States and India.

The experience gained from working for many years on a research doctorate and his academic background (including being an academic editor) meant his skills were put to great use when researching, analysing and validating the UK-to-India aviation sector, as well as identifying the differing needs of POP’s target market.

As one of the original founders of the project – along with Nino Judge and Graham Howat – Cris has worked on the POP project for about four years.

Cris and Nino met in the first week at Southampton University and – after stupidly ignoring each other for the first couple of days – have now been best friends for over 30 years!
