My work dwells on the politics of experimentation and placemaking as a vehicle to explore how cities are governed, contested and transformed. This includes research on three topical lines of enquiry: (1) the future of public spaces, (2) emergent sustainability agendas and infrastructures, and (3) the rural-urban condition. I am particularly interested in transformative everyday practices and their potential to unsettle particular ways of living, knowing and envisioning the urban. I draw inspiration from a diversity of critical, relational and participatory approaches in questioning what are responsible forms of urbanization that (may) enable more just and hopeful urban futures.
