citat Studies both the dominant organisation of urban space and place – and people's everyday resistance and experience of the city. citat
Master of Architecture, PhD in Architecture
Senior lecturer in Built Environment/Architecture at Urban Studies.
My ongoing research concerns urban processes in the cityscape of Malmö. In the research project “Transforming Dual Cities” I study urban fragmentation and projects that aim to build a more sustainable city through paths of communication and through densification. Ideas of the sustainable city are interesting to me both as a town-planning ideal and as the everyday lived experience of the citizens. In the research project “Urban Separatism in Sweden” I investigate the new so called lifestyle living in Swedish cities. My research concerns the consequences of lifestyle living on the fragmented cityscape, on public places and on the ability of the citizens to maneuver in an increasingly individualized housing market.
I have previously participated in research on energy efficiency and urban climatic design in North Africa and have studied poverty related urban development and gendered constructions of space in Central America.
I am currently the coordinator of internationalization at Urban Studies.
