Academic career  

I am an urban planner with a focus on urban resilience. I am interested in operationalizing the multifaceted concept of urban and community resilience as well as understanding factors that contribute to resilience and needed interventions to build and sustain it. I am also interested in concepts and methods of transformational capacities of urban governance and planning systems to the challenges posed to local governments by urbanization and migration dynamics.

Research topics  

Urban governance and planning, Urban resilience conceptualization and operationalization
