2015Welcome to Cities & Mobilities. My name is Anna Nikolaeva, and this website is dedicated to my research and activities at the University of Amsterdam and Utrecht University. I am interested in how mobilities are experienced, given meaning to and governed in contemporary cities and societies. I have written on airports, mobility and urban public space, mobility as a social experience and transitions to sustainable mobility.

Previously I did research and taught at Royal Holloway, University of London and VU University Amsterdam, and was a visiting scholar at City University of New York. I hold  PhD degree from Aarhus University, Denmark.

At the moment I work in a project on smart cycling and organise seminar series “Cities & Mobilities” at the Centre for Urban Studies, University of Amsterdam. I have created this website to share updates on this seminar series and my work.
