Research interests

I have focused my research on two research themes: 1) urban planning and policymaking, and 2) running.

In urban planning and policymaking I have particularly tackled with processes that engage the public.  I work with case study methodology, and have used and developed interpretative approaches for analysing planning processes and practices. I am interested in understanding processes as multi-actor settings of governance, where different interests and identities meet, and where definitions of issues, ways of knowing, and values have to be negotiated.

I have recently started research around running. I am particularly interested in recreational running as an embodied, material, sensual and affective practice. I am intrigued by questions like: Why do runners run in the places they run? How do runners perceive and experience the landscape while they run? How do technologies (shoes, GPS trackers, heart rate monitors, etc.) shape and take part in these experiences?

My research topics include:

  • Materials, devices and settings of planning and public engagement
  • Multimodal narratives and storytelling in urban planning
  • Different types of knowledge in policymaking and planning
  • Participatory mapping
  • Qualitative methods to access firsthand knowledge on the qualities of places
  • Human-technology-environment relationships in the activity of running
  • Phenomenon of barefoot/minimalist running
