Ideas and experiments
I have conducted international research projects in the fields of urban planning and economic geography. This work has been spread across Toronto, London (UK), Mumbai, and Trivandrum. Earlier research was concerned with vulnerable urban communities, while more recent work has examined state strategies aimed at boosting competitiveness. Summaries can be found below.
