Metropolitan Research Institute
managing director
I am sociologist (PhD) with long experience in urban sociology, strategic development, housing policy and EU regional policy issues. Since 2011 I am one of the Thematic Pole Managers (Programme Experts) of the URBACT programme of the EU, concentrating on knowledge exchange between cities.
I am vice chair of the European Network of Housing Research (ENHR), executive committee member of the European Urban Research Association (EURA), Policy Editor of the journal ‘Urban Research and Practice’.
I consider myself as 'urban explorer', interested in all types of urban innovations which change cities to more inclusive places. I like photography and biking.
