Research Interests

My work focuses on the interplay of technology, spatial organization and social relations. In my Phd dissertation 'Digital Cornerville' I studied the impact of ubiquitous computing, filesharing, and network technologies as well as the very notion of 'network' within the organization of an urban artistic community and its audio-visual practices. I especially focused on the layering and hybridization of online and offline collaboration. I further pursue this interest in hybrid spaces in studying the place making practices of digitally mobile creative freelancers and in location based social networks such as the GPS enabled smartphone dating app grindr. Currently, I work as a research associate in a work package on social, legal and ethical implications of IT supported emergency response in the Bridge project (Bridging resources and agencies in large-scale emergency management) http:/bridgeproject.eu/en.
