  • Associate Professor (Teaching)
  • The Bartlett School of Planning
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

I am a Lecturer (Teaching) in Urban Design at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London (UCL). I have a Degree in Architecture from the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Lisbon, a Master of Arts in Housing and Urbanism from the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London, and a PhD in Planning Studies from the University College London, Bartlett School of Planning.

Prior to joining UCL, I worked as an architect, urban designer and policy adviser, both in the public and private sectors. For five years, I worked in the design of buildings and large scale urban projects in offices based in London and Lisbon, and contributed to the development of several masterplans.

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interests span across the following themes:

Urban creative clusters: relationship between economic activities and the spatial configuration of the city, and the use and production of space and place;

Spatiality of work: contemporary patterns of work and how these are mediated by the built environment at different scales;

Urban design: inter-disciplinary and cross-scale approaches (interface with the fields of human and economic geography, planning, and urban sociology); public space.

My PhD research examines the relationship between space and digital production in Shoreditch, East London (2009-2014). Drawing together approaches from urban design and economic and human geography, it examines and conceptualizes how space is used in digital work practices and which spatial conditions mediate, at multiple scales, the operation of digital economy firms in inner-city locations. The study develops a new approach in this field of enquiry by investigating these relationships through the spatiality of (digital) work.
