Sven Daniel Wolfe is a researcher and doctoral candidate at the Department of Geography and Sustainability at the University of Lausanne. Under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Martin Müller, he is part of the research team M3 (Materialities | Multiplicities | Metropolis).
Before coming to Lausanne, he received a Master of Science in Geography at the University of Zurich and a Master of Arts in Political Science from the European University at St Petersburg. In his current project, he is investigating the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, using an actor-network approach to explore sociomaterial changes in the host cities of Ekaterinburg and Volgograd. His dissertation concerns itself with the new concept of policy multiplicities, elaborating how multiple realities, co-created by practices, overlap and struggle for dominance or survival within the urban environment of the World Cup host cities.
