I am a Research Associate with Rosie Parnell (PI) at the University of Sheffield, School of Architecture, on the project ‘Children Transforming Spatial Design: Creative Encounters with Children’ (Leverhulme Trust research grant, 2013-2016 – see also http://www.designingwithchildren.net/).
This is the intersection of diverse disciplinarian roads that I followed over the years: history and archeology, culture and heritage studies, sociology of childhood and architecture. I am also member of the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth (http://cscy.group.shef.ac.uk/).
My research role at the University of Sheffield is complemented by teaching social sciences at the American College of Thessaloniki, Greece. Prior to these I had worked at the Houses of Parliament, London, as Education and Visitor Assistant, which prompted my interest in children’s participation.
