PhD with postdoc experience, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Architectural Theory and Methods, Spatial Morphology Research Group and Data fusion Research Group.

I am a researcher with a background in architecture and city planning. My professional work in this field has been a mix of practice in public and private settings covering a range of urban design and planning activity and parallel academic engagements. Both my completed doctoral thesis in 2012 entitled: “Spatial Decision Support Methods for Urban Development in Contemporary Cities” and postdoctoral research at Chalmers (2012-2014, Mistra Urban Futures) in the URBES project (Urban Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) contributed to research within sustainable urban transformation and implementation of Spatial Decision Support Tools (SDST). My applied research in this area builds on development of theory and methods to support urban design and planning process towards sustainable transformation and resilience of cities within areas: 1) socio-ecological (ecosystem services & nature-based solutions), 2) cultural (baukultur, heritage & identity), 3) infrastructural (mobility, digitalization & data). Recently part of networks promoting cross-disciplinary research within academia and practice: Nordic Baltic Region Universities within ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnerships in Higher Education (2017-2022); C/0 City Working Group: Planning for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (present) and Transport Area of Advance at Chalmers (2017, 2021-22).
My parallel academic engagements involve teaching within thematic area of design and planning for urban transformation. Since 2014 engaged in different roles (examiner, coordinator, lecturer, supervisor) in Chalmers education in Bachelor (TISAM, TKSAM) and Master Programmes (MPARC, MPDSD, MPIEE, TRACKS). Since 2016 a member of the Excellence in Education Board, AESOP.
