Overview

My research is interdisciplinary in nature and  situated at the intersection of Architecture, Human Geography and Material Culture. In particular, I explore how the sociomateriality of intimate everyday events becomes entangled with aspects of urban governance and the respective political - and ethical - implications such entanglements may pose.

Biography

Trained as a Civil Engineer with specialisation in Spatial Planning, I received my degree from the University of Patras in 2007. For the subsequent years, I worked as a chartered design and project engineer for large infrastructure and renewable energy projects, while also practising as a freelancer for residential projects.

In 2015 I received my master’s degree in Urban Strategies and Design from the University of Edinburgh, and in 2021 I was awarded a PhD in Architecture from the University of Manchester. Since then, I have been working as a Research Associate in Architecture at the University of Manchester, and I am currently part of the research team for the project SASSI (A Systems Approach to Sustainable Sanitation Challenges in Urbanising China) under the Towards a Sustainable Earth (TaSE) programme (NE/S012354/1).
