Public Outreach and Invited Talks

I actively seek to connect scientific theory and knowledge with urban policies and everyday strategies of policymakers, practitioners and citizens. I am convinced that there is no such thing as a clear distinction between professionals and citizens. While pointing out differences, my talks seek to identify commonalities and shared objectives and interests between different actors.
