About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Urban Regeneration at Delft University of Technology. Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Department of Urbanism. Recently, I have also been appointed as Delft Education Fellow 2020-2021.

My research interests are urban regeneration, self-organisation, community entrepreneurship, online/offline citizen engagement, social capital and collective efficacy. I am currently leading international comparative research on community enterprises and other forms of citizen-based co-production and residential area redevelopment.

I am also involved in the aftermath of our JPI ERA-NET research on Smart Urban Governance, analysing our collected data on conditions for G2C / C2G co-production between citizens and local authorities through digital participatory platforms in urban planning, neighbourhood governance and self-organisation.

At the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Prof. Maarten van Ham, Dr. Evert Meijers and I manage the Urban Studies research group in the Department of Urbanism.

My educational background is in urban planning, housing and urban geography. I obtained a MSc degree in urban planning from Groningen University. In 2005, I received my PhD degree in urban geography at Delft University of Technology, for my thesis "Social Implications of Urban Restructuring and Residential Relocation".
