Forschungsschwerpunkte

    • Insbesondere ist er am urbanen Raum, Informalität, Resilienz, Kultur, Machtdynamiken, Identitätspolitik interessiert. Dabei fokussiert er sich auf sozio-räumliche Praktiken und Transformationen des Raums und deren Mapping/Visualisierung durch verschiedene Medien und Illustrationstechniken. Seine Forschung wird von seinem Interesse an Ethnographie, Anthropologie, Kulturwissenschaften, Urbanisierungs-Theorien und deren Zusammenhang zu Architektur-Design und zeitgenössischen urbanen Praktiken beeinflusst.
