Interests

  • Settlement geography
  • Landscape research
  • Andes
  • Alps

In my research, I aim at understanding mountain cities, their periurban and rural hinterlands, and rural–urban interactions. Core areas of interest are: (1) Mountains, urban morphology, and landscape theory and (2) Mountains, urbanization, and land use change.

Sharing a historicist vision, I focus on the central Andes—especially on Peru—and the European Alps. More recently, I am also interested in the northern Apennines. Apart from purely academic research, I have a strong interest in applied geography, planning, and development.
