Biografie

Iryna‚Äôs research interests are at the intersection of STS and Urban Studies, with a focus on public engagement in sociotechnical controversies, management and governance of urban infrastructure, sustainable and smart cities. Iryna's PhD project investigates how visions of urban wind energy futures open up new ways of integrating wind energy in the urban environment.

In the context of ongoing urban energy transitions, an increasing number of city governments have demonstrated interest in producing wind energy in cities. The deployment of urban wind energy systems gives rise to multiple visions of how cities with extensive presence of wind turbines might look like in the future. These visions set in motion transformations of various urban systems.

Drawing on socio-technical imaginaries and urban assemblages, her study explores the role of wind energy imaginaries in integrating wind energy in cities. It investigates how imaginaries destabilize urban assemblages and restabilize them into new configurations. It specifically looks at how elements of urban material form, practices of socio-material ordering and day-to-day management of urban infrastructures, as well as socio-professional relations, and energy practices of urban dwellers are reassembled. Based on the case studies of three innovative urban wind energy projects -- a roof integrated wind and solar energy system Power Nest, the Dutch WindWheel and Wind Tree, this project explores the effects of these imaginaries on the (re)design of buildings, infrastructure networks, and urban public spaces. Furthermore, the study investigates how imaginaries are getting transformed in the process of de- and re-stabilisation of assemblages. The results will contribute to understanding how imaginaries can foster urban socio-material changes and how they can be used as tools for governing urban wind energy transitions.

Projecten

Iryna's PhD is a part of zEPHYR project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement. zEPHYR is an interdisciplinary network established with a purpose of studying and developing technologies that enable a more efficient harvesting of wind energy resources in onshore and urban environments.

Iryna's PhD contributes to the consortium with analyzing socio-technical aspects of integrating wind energy in urban environments. Other consortium partners investigate emerging wind energy technologies through laboratory experiments, theoretical modelling, and numerical simulations. The project partners are:
