I am an urban researcher, consultant, and author focusing on facilitating the development of inclusive, co-produced cities. My projects span a diverse range of topics, including:

  • urban commons,
  • cultural and creative industries,
  • intermediate and adaptive reuse of vacant buildings,
  • inclusive citizen participation,
  • gender equality in urban policy, and
  • the political, symbolic, and normative aspects of architecture and urban planning.

I concentrate on the intersection between social research, public policy, and citizen empowerment. My goal is to create better urban policy through actionable research, goal-oriented analysis, and more diverse stakeholder engagement.

I am specialized in:

  • project development and management for public bodies and foundations, in particular those funded by the EU (H2020, Erasmus+, URBACT) and German federal ministries (BMBF, BBSR),
  • workshop design and delivery,
  • facilitation and moderation,
  • event management,
  • development and coordination of publication projects,
  • commissioned expertise on the topics above (i.e. research, reports, talks), and
  • policy analysis and consulting.

In 2017, I was validated by the EU program URBACT as an expert for integrated urban renewal, arts and culture, and the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities.
