I am a Greek post-doctoral researcher interested in the relation between housing practices, welfare state and culture. My PhD focused on the interconnections of family housing support with gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and austerity in Athens, Greece during 2017. At the Institute for Urban Research at Malmö University I plan to explore the impact of family housing strategies on short-term rental activity in “post-crisis” Greece. Moreover, the gender dimensions of this activity will be investigated focusing on the hosts. Given my research experience in the Southern European welfare and housing regimes, I am also interested in advancing my knowledge to other housing contexts and types of welfare state. Therefore, I would also like to investigate during this period, the characteristics of the Swedish short-term rental market in connection to housing policies, gender and family.
