Research Interests & Experience

I’m interested in the History of Architecture and Urbanism, Memorials and Monuments, Cultural Memory, Theories of Urban Design and Planning, Landscape Design and Cultural Geography. My dissertation research focuses on the representation of memories of twentieth century traumas in public urban space in Argentina, Germany and the United States. ​I study​monuments on two levels: as an emerging global practice of memorialization and as places for everyday life. I grew up in Berlin and Santiago.
