I am a Chartered Civil engineer in the environment/water sector, but in 2015 I started to venture into an entirely new field, following my volunteer campaigning direction. The first post a fresh new start attempts to describe the journey ahead, as well as the background and plans of this blog (whilst my older blog is a bit more raw and uncooked… and can still be viewed here).

Going from chartered professional engineer to PhD candidate in Architecture & Built Environment, is that a challenge? I am here to find out.

I research power, politics and people’s perception to cycle infrastructure (and urban environment more generally). My latest iteration of my thesis title is

Democracy, politics and activism: women’s voices for spatial fairness by example of campaigning for cycleways in the cities of Bremen and Newcastle

I am here for a a conversation, dialogue and debate.

Do get in touch!
