Kort presentation

Min forskning är huvudsakligen inriktad på analys av urbana rörelser och aktivism. Dessutom är jag intresserad av deltagandeprocesser inom stadsplanering. Andra ämnen som ryms under paraplyet urban sociologi och urbanpolitik, såsom bostadspolitik, sociospatial segregering, användning av offentliga utrymmen, hållbar rörlighet, lokal styrning och gentrifiering, ingår också i mitt forskningsarbete. På ett övergripande plan:sociala rörelser, politisk sociologi och kvalitativa metoder.

Nyckelord: social movements urban studies housing urban sociology

My first interests focused on Participatory-Action-Research methods and processes. These were applied to the study of citizen participation in urban planning and urban movements, which nurtured my PhD dissertation in 2000. Afterwards, I held teaching positions in different universities of Spain, Portugal and Hong Kong. In parallel to my academic career I also worked professionally at the Municipal Housing Department in Vigo (2000-2002) and occasionally as a consultant as a sociologist in several urban plans across Spain. Other topics I have covered in my research are urban sustainability, segregation, housing, density, globalisation, mobility and governance. These concerns were developed in different cities (mainly Porto, Vigo, Madrid and Hong Kong, but also during short stays in Medellin, Chicago, Beijing, Berlin, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Belo Horizonte, etc.). In addition I have participated quite often in various social movements. From 2011 I widened my critical approach with the study of anti-neoliberal, pro-democracy and pro-commons movements such as the 15M / Indignados in Spain and the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong.
