R-LINK krijgt naast haar promovendi en onderzoeksassistenten ook regelmatig versterking in de vorm van stagiair(e)s en post docs. Onze nieuwste aanwinsten Iulian, Sara en Feiqian stellen zich voor.
Iulian Barba Lata has recently started as a post-doc and will conduct his research on the Smart inclusive cities track, connected to the Land Use Planning group at Wageningen & Research, the AMS institute and R-LINK. “I have a background in planning and design, and just completed my PhD in Cultural Geography. The dissertation provides a conceptual and empirical exploration of experimental interventions across land-water interfaces in both urban and rural settings from the Netherlands and Russia. The results challenge a series of normative assumptions on ways of thinking about innovation. Within my current post-doc research, I expand on these ideas in relation to ongoing discussions around Smart Urbanism and Urban Living Labs, to better understand what are factors that could stimulate effective environments for socially and spatially inclusive innovation processes.
