Karol Kurnicki

Project Researcher

Lancaster University

Karol is Senior Research Associate at Lancaster University, working on the theme of Flexibility.

His research interests include mobilities, especially in the context of future transformations, social studies on infrastructure and digitalisation of societies. His work has been inspired by critical urban studies, social practice theory and mobility studies.

He previously held Research Fellow positions at the Leibniz-IfL in Leipzig (HERA PUTSPACE project) and University of Warwick (funded by Horizon 2020 COFUND), working on platformisation of transport and infrastructuring of urban im|mobilities.

In the CREDS project, he develops research on institutional flexibility in relation to energy demand based on different case studies. This research investigates how institutions temporally organise sets of practices and how they react to planned and long-term as well as unexpected socio-technical transformations.
