Research overview

My research interests grow out of a strong focus on specific geographic settings both in East Asia and South East Europe. Tokyo has provided the context for much of my research, but I have also worked in Taipei and in Trieste and Belgrade. I am currently involved in projects that seek to place Tokyo in a wider context of East Asian urbanism and that explore of the role of traditional markets in contributing to socially just cities in Europe.


Current projects

  • New Belgrade: From Modern to Market
  • Japanese cities in a Chinese and Asian context
