Title project idea: Future on the Waterfront: Water as a risk and an element of urban design.

I am a human geographer working on the political ecology of a just socio-ecological transformation. Currently, I am particularly interested in the (re)territorialization of the Jakarta Bay and in the spatial configuration of the land-sea transition zone. In Northern Germany I am currently investigating the environmental conflict on the fairway adaptation of the Elbe River, using empirical social research methods (qualitative interviews and content analysis of newspaper articles.)

In DenkRaum I wish to contribute to the creation of scenarios for the development of sustainable urban designs, adapted to climate change; I am particularly interested in investigating the role of water for urban development.
