I am an urban economist and cultural geographer working at The Bartlett Development Planning Unit (UCL) in the M.Sc. Urban Economic Development.
I hold a Joint PhD in Urban Planning and Aesthetics (Rome La Sapienza/Paris 8) and have a background in development economics and international cooperation.
My doctoral thesis on the electronic music industry analysed the links between night-time economies, urban space, and techno cultures in London and Detroit.
