My research is framed into my personal commitment to fighting for social and environmental justice. I do so by working closely with communities in ways that go beyond the classical object-subject studies and involve local stakeholders in the knowledge production process. My theoretical approach is close to urban political ecology, but at the same time is enriched by other disciplines such as environmental humanities or ecological economics. As a member of the RECOMS project, I explore the ways in which communities along urban waterways can be empowered to embrace resourceful, resilient, and fair environmental practice by unlocking social, economic, environmental and/or political constrains. My main goal is analysing the co-creation of urban post-industrial waterways and nearby communities, and using these insights to inform ongoing commoning practices so they can successfully counter privatisation dynamics in an inclusive, collaborative and ecologically responsible way.
