Dr Sandra Jasper

Dr Sandra Jasper is a geographer by training, whose work spans the fields of cultural, urban, and environmental geography. Her current work involves four themes: cities as experimental fields (how urban wastelands and other marginal spaces serve as cultural and scientific laboratories); sonic geographies (how sound constituted, sensed, and governed); feminist materialisms (how nature, life, and the human subject are conceptualised in geography and beyond); geographies of global/planetary health (how urban environmental change affects human and other-than-human health).

She is Assistant Professor of Geography and Gender at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Sandra worked for four years at the University of Cambridge before joining Humboldt-Universität in 2020. In 2015, she obtained her PhD in Geography from University College London. Her doctoral research was based at and funded by the UCL Urban Laboratory.
