Personal profile

Research profile

I am an urban researcher with a design background and a passion for the human aspects of city-making. Currently mostly working in urban planning and governance, I get energized from working on complex, societal challenges that require interdisciplinary and multilevel approaches. My work covers the themes of social sustainability, social justice, capabilities approach, urban (area) development, real estate development, policy implementation, collaborative governance, community-led development and social housing. While I enjoy theoretical thinking, I also value much the exchange between science, policy and practice.
