Job Title

Professor of Architecture and Philosophy

Research Interests Drawing on the two disciplines in which I have been trained, architecture and philosophy, my research fosters creative practice methodologies and develops concept-tools and theories that draw on care ethics, feminist new materialism, the posthumanities, environmental humanities, and affect theory. I experiment with ficto-critical and transversal writing methodologies and environmental story telling approaches, currently with a focus on the Plantationocene. I am the author of Creative Ecologies: Theorizing the Practice of Architecture (Bloomsbury 2018), How to Make Yourself a Feminist Design Power Tool (AADR 2016), and Dirty Theory: Troubling Architecture (AADR 2019). I have collaborated on many edited collections, including: with Catharina Gabrielsson and Helen Runting, Architecture and Feminisms: Ecologies, Economies, Technologies (Routledge 2017); with Gunnar Sandin and Bettina Schwalm, After Effects: Theories and Methodologies in Architectural Research (Actar 2020); with Naomi Stead, Writing Architectures: Ficto-Critical Approaches (Bloomsbury 2020); with Marco Jobst, Architectural Affects After Deleuze and Guattari (Routledge 2021); with Adrià Carbonell, Hannes Frykholm, and Sepideh Karami, Infrastructural Love: Caring for Our Architectural Support Systems (Birkhäuser 2022).
