Personal profile

Research summary

My areas of expertise are: affordable housing, housing policy,  gentrification, social segregation and inequalities in metropolitan areas, and social mix. In particular, I'm interested in (1) residential satisfaction in affordable housing and long-term outcomes of living in affordable housing on well-being; (2) and in innovative solutions to provide decent, affordable and attractive housing to low and middle-income households, based on new models (hybrid tenures, empowerment of users/ consumers).

I authored articles in leading scientific journals (Urban Studies, Environment and Planning A. Housing Studies, Journal of Housing and the Built Environment), participated in international research and applied projects (e.g. ESPON BestMetropolises, ESPON TOWN), obtained several scholarships (French Government, Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education) and awards (Foundation for Social Sciences in France; Polish Weekly Magazine POLITYKA).
