I am an urban planner and my research focus is on the physical environment of suburban areas and its possible effect on the social aspects. My interest is post-socialist cities and currently, my dissertation is concentrated on Prague’s hinterland suburbs. My background involving urban planning and architecture so besides the suburban physical environment my interests include: the planning process, masterplans, urban form, settlement density, urban morphology, space syntax, sub / urban design, shrinking cities, etc. Previously, I worked on the shrinking phenomena in Albania with a specific interest in the industrial cities built in the communist period. The results of it are documented in my Master thesis “Shrinking Cities in Albania- Planning for insecurities”.
