More about her research

Conserving urban heritage is a part of one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 11.4). Balancing urban conservation and development has been researched from the perspectives of architectural design and urban planning, but this thesis addresses a gap in knowledge by investigating the institutional factors promoting and constraining the shift from dilemmas to balance within the field of urban conservation and (re)development. The main goal of this research is to provide theoretical understanding and practical suggestions for balancing urban conservation and development in rapidly urbanizing and modernizing countries.
