The "Stadtlabor for Multimodal Anthropology" aims at developing ‘an anthropology of/as urbanism’. It critically explores governmental, everyday, insurgent and more-than-human practices of city making. It also experiments with ethnography as a more-than-textual, multimodal practice.

PhD Project: Remembering Future Disasters: Climate Change, Memory and Anticipation in Ancash, Peru

Supervisors: Prof. Ignacio Farías and Prof. Sharon Macdonald

Abstract : My project deals with practices of memory and anticipation amid climatic and seismic disasters in the Peruvian Andes. With his research I aim to understand how different actors remember and anticipate extreme events and the consequences that those diverse practices have for the creation of past and future temporalities in urban environments.
