I research everyday politics and policy processes in wide-ranging contexts such as clean energy, smart cities, urban mobility, and waste management.

I am trained as an engineer through first-degree, a coder through industry experience, a critical social science scholar through doctoral research, and a humble learner through life-experiences. 

My work is deeply interdisciplinary. To innovate conversations exploring politics of public policy and generate new openings into ongoing processes, I experiment with concepts and methods from Policy Studies, Human Geography and Science and Technology Studies.
