I mainly teach in our Spatial Planning and Tourism programmes. My teaching is concerned with the foundational spatial perspectives in human geography, but also on tourism, spatial planning, uneven development and housing policy. In my teaching, I emphasise the importance of history and geography for understanding spatial and social phenomena. My ambition is also to connect theory and practice, to clarify the connection between what students learn during their studies and how it connects to their future careers.
