Interest and/or practice of interdisciplinarity: 

The research experience in urban and residential sociology with a focus on the construction of urban residential identities as they relate to differentiated capacities and interconnect with the transforming social, cultural, economic, symbolic and spatial circumstances in cities has brought me into closest connection with architectural research. The interpretative approach towards the dual practices of different actors/stakeholders/residents in residential and public spaces of cities, policies and market strategies within a broad spectre of processes reflecting on urban change have more recently been bridging the sociological, architectural, planning, engineering/facilities management and economic perspectives as they appear in a co-edited book ‘Ways of Residing in Transformation. Interdisciplinary Perspectives’ to be published by Ashgate in 2015. My continuous interest in interdisciplinary urban research applies to conceptual as well as to methodological issues.
