I am an environmental social scientist working in the intersection of social theory and environmental politics. My research focus is on how socio-environmental transformations interact with broader political and economic structures as well as how people imagine and perceive such relations. I approach this objective from an interdisciplinary perspective: I am an engineer by training and I've just finished my PhD in social sciences (Cum Laude).
My current project studies the ecology of weeds and the technical dimensions of weeding technologies as well as their entanglement with economic-political systems.
My research has looked at the politics of alternative food networks and community economy or the gentrification effect of green areas and sustainability programs in cities.
