Pavel Grabalov

Pavel holds a master’s degree in urban studies from Malmö University (2017) and has interests in urban planning and people-environment interaction. His current PhD project focuses on the role of cemeteries in contemporary cities. Urban cemeteries accommodate activities, which are often not limited to burial and commemorative practices, and to some extent may function as recreational parks. Pavel’s research aims to build new knowledge on urban cemeteries as special multifaceted places, using case studies from Scandinavian and Russian cultural contexts.

Research interests: cemeteries, public space, green infrastructure, compact city, place.
