Sabrina is trained as an urban sociologist and is currently rounding up her PhD trajectory on care and experimentation in the city, at Erasmus School of Health Policy and Management, Erasmus University Rotterdam.

More information about Sabrina Huizenga

Sabrina her PhD research is about the caring city and is located at the intersection of urban studies and public health, with an eye on 'the right to the city'. Through ethnographic studies and discourse analyses, she investigates resilience policy, urban labs, big data and youth care.

Moreover, Sabrina participated in the two-year ZonMw 'Learning to dance with corona' research, where she had the unique opportunity to ethnographically follow decision-making regarding corona policy, scrutinising decision-makers up close thereby opening up the black box of corona policy.

As a result, Sabrina writes about the Resilient City, the Imaginary City, the Experimental City, the Pandemic City and the Datafied City. By combining Urban Studies and Public Health, she enriches literature on urban governance with the (STS) concepts of Care and the other way around, into ‘The Caring City’.

She is a member of the WTMC (Netherlands Graduate Research School of Science, Technology and Modern Culture).
