My key areas of research:

As a historian and urban researcher I work on the transformation of modern cities at the point of interface between the history of daily life, the environment and our senses.

Visit the Everyday Life – Directions for Use exhibition. You are certain to discover astonishing links between the use of technical appliances and implements and their significance for our everyday lives.
