Personal profile

With a sociology background from the Universities of Leipzig, Jena and Grenoble (Sciences Po), I am currently focussing on the study of housing relations in the context of tenants' displacement in Eastern Germany. This serves as a prism for my broader interests in the social production of space, feminist theory and political economy, governance and the problem of structure and agency and the implications of neoliberal austerity urbanism.
