Research Interests

I am an architect and urban planner, holding a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science. Throughout my career, I have pioneered works at the intersection of architecture, city, and data science. Most notably, I developed the research methodologies to track and analyze human behaviors in the large-scale museum, together with the Louvre, and the pedestrianized streets and public space, Barcelona.

My specialties include:

1) Bigdata in Museums

2) Bigdata for the urban pedestrianization

3) Digital technologies and urban theory

Through them, I am exploring what the science signifies for the architect and urban planner.
