I am currently part of the EU project "LINKS - Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience" awarded under the Horizon 2020 programme. It sets out to understand and assess the effects of social media and crowd-sourcing technologies on European disaster resilience.
My PhD project focused on the rise of global city networks and cities’ increasing engagement in global climate governance. It focused on how cities respond to increasing risks stemming from climate change and sought to understand how cities create new global spaces for urban policy-making and whether these spaces bring about new modes of governance and alternative approaches to the climate agenda.
My research concerns the following subjects: Global environmental change, Global climate governance, Climate change adaptation, Disaster risk management, Urban resilience and sustainability, Cities as international actors, City networks, City Diplomacy, Sustainable Development
