My PhD: "Sociological analysis of cultural diversity

Heidelberg University 2012-current

The projects I work(ed) on answer the  following questions:

  • what is cultural diversity and how to measure it better,

  • how people in European countries participate in cultural events

  • how to map cultural actors, cultural organisations, mobility of artists

  • how to measure impact of an international convention/treaty,

  • how to measure impact/value of cultural projects,

  • how to measure impact/value of cultural relations,

  • how culture can drive democratic development


Something to brag about

one of my data visualizations (produced in collaboration with Keith Nurse that showed remittance flow to the Caribbean countries) has been published in a catalogue of an art exhibition (The other side of now) at the Pérez Art Museum Miami
