Biografie

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 am analyzing 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 is: How are diverging visions and imaginaries about the shaping of hydrosocial territories through large-scale hydraulic infrastructure (dams, water transfers and hydropower plants) in Turkey, Peru and Spain promoted, realized and contested or accepted; and with what effects? At the moment, I am specifically focusing on the discussions about dam removal in Spain as a proposal to reimagine the role of dams in our society-nature relations.

As a lecturer, I am involved in two courses and in the supervision of BSc and MSc students interested in topics of political ecology, environmental justice and politics of hydraulic infrastructure.
