My research focusses on the interface between urban transformations and (un)sustainable consumption patterns. I study the link between these phenomena through a practice lens and analyse how urban spaces are constituted and transformed by practices that entail different forms of material consumption and that harbour different potentials for contributing to the well-being of practitioners. I am interested in how social inequalities produce differentiated accesses to urban spaces and forms of consumption. Thus far, I have worked on urban commuting, heating and energy use. Currently, I am studying the potential of tactical urbanism to prefigure sustainability transitions in urban mobility.
I work with different social theories and have applied qualitative, quantitative and participatory and consultative research methods.
