My work aims to reduce social and political conflicts between individuals and local communities within contemporary metropolitan regions. By combining computational social sciences, social theory and institutional design, I investigate how individuals, groups and communities rely on social and urban spaces to conduct democratic processes. Through this work, I develop new design and planning strategies for contemporary metropolitan spaces.
I am a researcher at the ETH Zurich, visiting at the MIT, and Research associate in the Chôros network. Prior to this, I was Visiting Professor at the University of Montreal’s School of Planning, Lecturer and Studio Director at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Affiliated Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford, Visiting Fellow at the National University of Singapore and Academic Guest at the ETH Future Cities Laboratory.
