Greg Nijs is a sociologist working as a researcher at Urban Species (hosted by Université Libre de Bruxelles – Faculty of Architecture/Faculty of Social Sciences and Philosophy & LUCA School of Arts – Intermedia). Bringing together social research and collaborations with artists and designers, his interests revolve around issues of human and other-than-human entanglements, participation, experience, affect and cognition in the design and use of urban environments, other/ed knowledge practices, and questions of the urban, nature, and technology. In his approach, he draws on a range of social scientific sources such as science and technology studies (STS), design studies, multispecies studies, cognitive sciences, HCI, pragmatism, and the like. Greg is also curator and co-director at c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, a Brussels-based contemporary art space, as well as guest lecturer at the Printmaking department at ENSAV La Cambre.
