Anna’s research is transdisciplinary with a focus on inclusiveness in public urban place. She is driven by a curiosity of the uniquely imperfect and temporal found in interstitial urban space. Anna is supervised by Dr Mirko Guaralda, Dr Severine Mayere, and Dr Julie-Anne Carroll. Anna’s PhD is titled Transient Public Urban Places: Learning about inclusive spatial design from the people on the margins. This doctoral study explores how the understanding of socio-spatial conditions in transient urban public place can inform design practices for socio-spatially inclusive spatial design.
