Here at the University of East London we are pleased to announce that a new colleague will be joining us at the end of this month to contribute to our Olympic and megaevent research activity. I would like to take this opportunity to give Dr. Viehoff a big welcome!
Dr. Valérie Viehoff studied Geography in Germany (Bonn and Mainz), France (Dijon) and completed her PhD at University College London (UK). Her main research interests lie in urban geography, urban development and sporting mega-events, issues of water supply systems and provision of urban infrastructure, nature and society and (urban) political ecology with a regional focus on Western Europe and North Africa. Before joining UEL she worked as a lecturer at the University of Cologne and was part of the Organising Committee of the International Geographical Congress (IGC 2012). She used to row for the German national team and won a silver medal at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.
