Centre for Urban Science & Policy, TU Delft
I am an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management in Delft University of Technology. I lead the Centre for Urban Science and Policy research group at the department of Multi-Actor Systems. I am also serving the TPM AI Lab and an active member of the Dutch Network Science community.
My research focuses on tackling the challenges of urbanisation in an equitable and just manner. I am particularly interested in understanding the processes that drive and shape urbanization and inequalities from a computational perspective. I focus on using methods in spatial data science, complex network analyses and participatory mapping to develop computational tools for advancing the theories and practices of urban science.
I also instruct on remote expeditions for National Geographic where high school students have the opportunity to learn about conservation, anthropology, engineering and policy. Previously, I helped build a media and technology startup dedicated to the cause of making this planet a healthier place through authentic journalism and data science at The Outdoor Journal.
