Nicolas Zehner is a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Edinburgh and a visiting research fellow in the Science, Technology & Society Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. In his research he aims to shed light on the practice of city-making by examining how urban planning agents construct and diffuse specific urban-regional sociotechnical imaginaries. In particular, his dissertation focuses on the role of scientific expertise in the drive for ‘smart urbanism’.
