Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My research focuses on urban change, particularly city marketing and urban imaging and identity. More recently I have been working on urban policy and the creative city and urban cosmopolitanism. I am also interested in the heritage of state-socialism and how it interacts with urban identity today. I work in both the post-socialist context (mainly East and Central Europe) and in various advanced capitalist contexts (UK and Sweden). I have expertise in urban policy and qualitative research methods.
