Urbanist in Residence, Museum of LondonLondon, United Kingdom
About me
London-based writer, curator and researcher on urban culture, heritage and identities. I am currently serving as the first ever Urbanist in Residence at the Museum of London, pursuing an ongoing project on civic night spaces and the museum’s planned development at Smithfield Market. Alongside this I have been appointed Research Fellow at Theatrum Mundi, a centre for experimentation in the public culture of cities, based between Paris and London. Previous roles have included managing UCL’s Urban Laboratory, leading on an institutional race equality implementation plan for University College London, and last year completing a curatorial residency at Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Berlin after being awarded an Arts Council England grant. I am a member of Museum Detox and a Young Urbanist at the Academy of Urbanism, whilst also regularly contributing to talks, panels, roundtables and crits on the creative city, situated practices, night spaces, gentrification, the urban essay film, and queer urbanisms.
