My areas of interest center on the place of the historical within contemporary built environments. I aim to gain a better understanding of how surviving traces of the past are preserved, interpreted, experienced and exploited today, and how they contribute to urban life while inspiring urban identities. A solid understanding of the past is thus required. My specialties include architecture and planning of the modern era, built environments of European colonialism, heritage management, and North Africa.
