Cristina Temenos is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography. She received her PhD in Urban Geography from Simon Fraser University. Cristina’s research is focused on the relational politics of public health and social reproduction in cities across the so-called 'global north' and 'global south'. Current work examines the effects of post 2008 austerity policies of public health services across Latin America and Europe. Her research also engages these interests through a focus on the geographies of harm reduction drug policy in cities in Europe, North America, and the Caribbean, the ways that social movements produce and mobilize knowledge about health and human rights to advocate for policy change in cities, and the ways that policy mobilities (re)shape cities. Cristina is an editorial board member for Environment & Planning C: Politics and Space and Geography Compass. Her work has appeared in the Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Environment & Planning A, Environment & Planning D, the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers.
