Research overview

Since October 2016, I am University Academic Fellow in Critical Urban Transformations at the University of Leeds.

My research focuses on:

  1. Comparative approaches to gentrification, displacement and dispossession in the contemporary city,
  2. Social exclusion, financialisation of housing markets and urban contestation,
  3. Migration, citizenship and the transformation of local politics in post-crisis scenarios.

My regional expertise comprises Latin American and Southern European cities, with a special focus on Madrid. For more than 15 years I have been developing extensive research in Latin America, especially in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico.
