Teaching Activities

My teaching activities focus on architecture, most notably housing, and urban development. Currently, I offer a MA course "Urban Development Challenges and Emerging Solutions in the 21st century" at the HSG, "Housing Challenges, Issues and Solutions in the Global South" at the ETH Zürich, and provide several lectures within the post-graduation course ETH MAS in Housing. Recent guest lectures were given at the ISS The Hague, University of Basel, and University of Sao Paulo.
