As a lecturer and researcher I am interested in the political ecology of water, understanding water and water governance as being intrinsically shaped by power relations.
In my PhD project, I analysed processes and discussions surrounding the envisioning, construction and contestation of hydraulic infrastructure and connected territorial reconfigurations in Turkey, Peru and Spain. My central research question was: How have contested imaginaries shaped hydraulic infrastructure projects and, in consequence, (re)configured hydrosocial territories in Turkey, Peru and Spain?
As a lecturer, I am involved in several courses and the supervision of BSc and MSc students interested in topics of political ecology, environmental justice and politics of hydraulic infrastructure.
