Abstract

As Human Geographer, I conduct research at the institute on two main topics. On the one hand, I deal with the challenges of urban and retail development, among other things such as digitalization. I am particularly interested in the perspectives of small and medium-sized cities. In my doctoral thesis, on the other hand, I am focusing on the interactions between migration, participation and the city, and am addressing the desideratum of research on medium-sized cities.
