Research interests

My research explores the intersections between the urban and the political. I am interested in:

  • the role of cities in process of de-politicization and re-politicization and in the relations between cities, nature and politics
  • urban geography
  • political philosophy
  • urban uprisings and movements
  • urban commons
  • geographies of populism
  • urban governance and politics, with particular reference to urban infrastructures
  • geographies of neoliberalization and austerity
  • geographies of post-democratization
  • urban political ecology, with particular reference to the politics of urban sustainability, climate change, and the Anthropocene
