We are excited to welcome Chiara Valli and Myrto Dagkouli-Kyriakoglou to the IUR collective! Chiara and Myrto will be working as postdoctoral researchers within the Critical Urban Sustainability Hub (CRUSH).

Chiara is an urban geographer interested in the social and political dimensions of urban restructuring and their impacts on social sustainability and urban (in)equality. At the IUR, she will focus on the emergence of Business Improvement Districts and other forms of public-private partnerships for urban renewal in Sweden, and the related impacts in terms of social sustainability and social justice. Check out her profile.

Myrto is a researcher working on housing with a focus on its connection to family, gender and austerity. At the IUR, she will explore the role of family housing strategies in short-term rentals’ activity in “post-crisis” Greece. Check out her profile.
