  • Users of research expertise:

    I am PhD researcher at the Cosmopolis Centre for Urban Research of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), and work full time on the AirCasting Brussels Living Lab. As a researcher and as an activist, I am interested in the distribution among people and places of urban socio-ecological goods and bads, as well as in how these come to be known and governed.

    Before joining VUB I worked with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on issues related to the urban environment and cycled through Europe to explore and promote ecomobility practices. Previously I also worked with different international institutions and NGOs in Western Europe, Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.
