Personal profile

Personal information

I am the postdoctoral researcher of the Infra-demos research project based at the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My work has focused on public space, contestation, political imagination, waste, and infrastructures in Athens, Greece. My current research examines the ways in which political practices, (de)legitimation processes, and modes of governance have been developing around infrastructures in Greece in times of crisis.
