Roza Tchoukaleyska received her PhD from the University of Sheffield in 2013. Her dissertation research considers the links between urban redevelopment, public space, and neighbourhood identity in France, with particular attention to the ways in which contestations over public space – who should use the space, and how – are articulated by a diversity of community and state actors. Roza’s postdoctoral research will examine the meaning and function of public space in suburban high-rise districts in France and Canada, with a focus on the impact of high-rise refurbishment programs on community cohesion and suburban public spaces.
