Dr Mara Ferreri

VC Senior Fellow

Department: Geography and Environmental Sciences

I am an urban and cultural geographer working on issues of precarity, commons, housing and urban temporariness. After a PhD in Geography at Queen Mary University of London, I have held research and teaching positions at the LSE and Durham. Prior to joining Northumbria as VC Research Fellow in Human Geography, I held a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Catalonia, with the project Commoning Housing. My research has been published in international journals such as City, Transactions of the IBG, cultural geographies, Urban Studies and Geoforum. I am a founding editor of the open-access international Radical Housing Journal.
