Vera Leferink

Research intern

After her bachelor's degree in Urban Design, Vera decided on the Master Human Geography at Utrecht University. This is because she wanted to know more about movements and behavior of people in public space. At Stipo she is doing her graduation research into public spaces at a neighborhood level. How is it used, how can a connection between local residents and these public spaces be created and how can a sense of ownership of a place be increased? When she is not busy with her studies she is out rollerblading or going for a walk. She likes city trips to discover other cultures and visit public spaces there. Moreover, Vera loves to read and to be creative.
