Beatrice De Carli is a Lecturer in Urban Design at the University of Sheffield, where she leads the MA in Urban Design. Her research interests focus on urban design and social justice. Through participatory design and action research methodologies, her work examines the self-organised tactics enacted by citizens to re/appropriate urban space, and their capacity to produce transformative meanings, spaces and social relations vis-à-vis dominant urban narratives and planned interventions.
Beatrice is an Associate at Architecture Sans Frontières UK (ASF-UK), a non-profit organisation that works between architecture and international development practice, and she is part of the Cities of the Global South research network at the Sheffield Institute of International Development.
