Since October 2021, I am a researcher at the Intitut für interdisziplinäre Konflikt- und Gewaltforschung (IKG) at Bielefeld University. During the winter term 2020/2021, I deputised the professor for human geography at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, followed by deputising the professor for human geography of North America and urban geography during the summer term 2021. As human geographer and sociologist, I am interested in the interrelation of sociality, materiality and space in postmodern societies. A particular focus of my research is on international migration and urban developments across the globe.
