PhD student

Misagh is an architect and urban designer. She is doing her PhD at the department of Architecture and Built Environment at Lund University. In her research, she reviews sustainable urban flood management approaches in everyday life, by focusing on the use dimension. Her thesis is ‘Carescape of blue-green solutions in everyday life: Exploring the socio-materiality of a technical infrastructure’. She borrows the notion of care to critically discuss the (co)beneficiality of blue-green solutions through relational human-nonhuman perspectives and through qualitative and quantitative methods. In addition, she teaches and holds lectures in different courses at the university and supervises master thesis students.
