I am currently working as a research manager in the Urban Studies Institute at the University of Antwerp. My research and professional experience is in the fields of Organization Studies, Science & Technology Studies and Urban Studies. My research interests regard particularly the study of urban and social phenomena in relation to technology, working practices, organizing processes, and innovation as explored through qualitative methodologies.
