Welcome to my website

I work as an urban geographer and political sociologist at the University of Amsterdam. As a relational sociologist, I focus on networks: what sorts of networks do people form to resolve their collective problems and achieve their goals vis-à-vis others? As a geographer, I’m particularly interested how different kinds of environments mediate collective action. I have a long-standing interest in the roles of cities as terrains of political struggle and more recently have been studying how social media platforms facilitate or thwart challenges against the status quo.
