I am educated an architect (MSc. 2007) and specializing in heritage management and urban governance (PhD. 2015). My research focuses on the past, present, and future of conservation planning, and understandings of the process of heritage production and heritage management; of what heritage (management) is and what heritage (management) does. Within this context I aim to develop both empirical and methodological work, and collaborative and reflective research practices.
I am currently researcher on a large EU-funded project (PICH, EU-funded JPI) and about to embark on another one (Open Heritage funded through H2020) both focus on urban governance and heritage management. PICH looks at the impact of urban planning and governance reform on the historic built environment and intangible heritage. In Open Heritage we will be working towards new, inclusive governance and finance models for adaptive heritage re-use.
I also teach Conservation Planning, and I convene the school Early Career Network.
In my research I look at the following areas:
1) past, present, and future management of the historic environment, especially in the context of ‘Historic Urban Landscapes’. Following my PhD work, I am exploring the application of this new concept with heritage managers and policy makers in local authorities;
2) innovating understandings of the process of heritage production, of what heritage is and what heritage does, defining heritage as a practice of using the past for contemporary purposes and as a future-making practice. In the context of this theme I am developing a project on citizen science for heritage. I am working on a project on Brexit and heritage;
3) society and smart urbanisms, consisting of empirical work on policies, participatory practices, and citizen experiences in the Netherlands in relation to claims on concepts as ‘quadruple helix’, ‘smart city’ and ‘living labs’ together with Sukanya Krishnamurthy;
4) across these areas I work on empirical and methodological development, collaborative and reflective research practices, and I like to experiment with the use of digital technologies.
