Biography

I am currently working as a researcher in the Building City Dashboards project in the National Centre for Geocomputation.

My background is in planning with a specialisation in spatial analysis. Aside from working as an academic for more than a decade, I worked as a consultant and project manager in several projects at different scales related to city.
