Alexandra Baixinho

Alexandra Baixinho is an Urban Anthropologist with a PhD in Visual Sociology (Goldsmiths College, University of London). She is interested in sensory and experimental ethnographic approaches to urban spaces, and in art-contaminated scientific practices and modes of representation. Her recent projects are focused on urban rhythms and socio-cultural transformations, particularly in ports and post-industrial waterfronts, through the use of photography and sound recordings. She has also been working as a researcher in projects ranging from urban governance to environmental sociology, at the Institute for Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (ICS-UL).
