If you want to really know what I am currently working on (urban sustainability and sustainable digitalization), get in touch. One of the things about publishing academic papers is that it’s slow, at least for me. There are worse things about academic publishing, but that’s something for another day.

All articles should be accessible either as pre-prints or as open access articles via my Google Scholar profile. Please get in touch if this does not work.
