Andrew KarvonenI am an Assistant Professor in Urban and Regional Studies at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm where I conduct research on the politics and practice of sustainable urban development. I am particularly interested in infrastructure networks and how they structure the complex relationships between nature, technology, and society. I use ideas from urban studies and science & technology studies to examine notions of governance, expertise, politics, and materiality as they relate to the sustainable development of cities.

I have a PhD in Community & Regional Planning from the University of Texas at Austin where I studied the cultural and political aspects of urban runoff in two U.S. cities (Austin and Seattle). I also have a decade of experience as an environmental and sustainability consultant and am a licensed engineer in the State of Washington. I am currently a member of the Association of American Geographers (AAG), the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST), and the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (RGS).
