Franz Buhr is a researcher at the Centre of Geographical Studies, University of Lisbon, where he obtained a PhD degree in migration studies. He was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie junior researcher within the initial training network INTEGRIM. He holds an Erasmus Mundus MSc degree in sociology of migration awarded by the University College Dublin. His research lies at the intersection between migration and urban studies and he is particularly interested in migrants’ role in transforming urban space, urban mobilities, practical knowledges, and navigation. He currently works for the H2020 SMARTDEST project, in which he examines the commercial landscape transformation driven by the demands of transient populations in Lisbon. He is co-coordinating an IMISCOE research initiative on privileged mobilities called PriMob. He has published in journals such as the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Mobilities, and Social Inclusion.
