About me

I am a social scientist interested in community relations and their dynamics in diversifying urban environments. I seek to understand changing political and social landscapes by engaging with daily practices and forms of interaction. Currently, I lead the ERC funded project EmergentCommunity (2021-2025) where we work towards creating empirically grounded knowledge on coexistence and conflict. See more:
