I am a researcher in media studies and visual culture. I have been undertaking a doctoral research in Media and Communication Studies (MKV) at Lund University. This PhD project deals with mediated urban creativity in contemporary Indonesian and Malaysian cities, including its interplay with the notions of identity, space, place, memory and power in Southeast Asian contexts. By combining ethnographic and visual approaches, including the photo-documentation in documentary photography expression, the research draws on qualitative, ethnographic and visual methodologies to explore what people do with media in the context of Southeast Asian urban everyday creativities.
