Current research interests

My research focuses on Multi-locality of Working (working in multiple places, such as public library, home, office, coffee shop, shared workspace and public transportation) and Multi-locality of Living (using second home for job-related reasons) in urban and regional planning, including rural contexts. This research includes studies on Multifunctionality, Digitalization and Publicness/Privateness of urban spaces; Sharing (of spaces, service and mobility), Hybridization and Circular approaches to urban and regional planning; Nature within urban development and climate changes, with a major focus on Green Infrastructure, Ecosystem Services and Nature-Based-Solutions in regional and urban planning (from strategies to practices).
