Research

PhD candidate at the Dept. of Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-Information Management at ITC, University of Twente. My research focuses on infrastructuring urban futures.

By definition, infrastructure is sunk-in into the fabric of the city. It is the silent background that supplies our needs for transactions between people, things and space, and shapes how we position ourselves in the world. This performative characteristic of infrastructure forces us to think about its moralization and how, through the process of infrastructuring, the city becomes a place of inclusion as well as exclusion. Drawing on feminist and postcolonial science and technologies studies, my research will critically asses the translation of knowledge into infrastructure and how infrastructure mediates how we see the world. It will question whose knowledge is represented, what selective tendencies are inscribed in infrastructure and how the infrastructure prescribes behaviour and knowledge.
