Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


I was awarded the French AXA Research Award in recognition of my “innovative work on urban sustainability in the global South”. Selection was made by an expert committee based on a short list of 40 scholars, of which I was one of the three that received the award. The award was €250,000 to be used for a new research grant, which became the 3 year research project named “Grounding and Worlding Urban Infrastructures” (GROWL).
