Urban architect. Master in city and technology (IAAC) and Postgraduate in Data Science (UB)
I have been learning about cities since 2013, working on strategic urban planning from an ecosystem perspective: conducting studies around public space, mobility, green infrastructure, social cohesion, urban metabolism and new technologies. My work has been supported by spatial analytical study, designing urban indicators as a tool to manage and evaluate sustainable city developments.
I was born in Bilbao, and have lived in San Sebastián, Wellington, Barcelona and Madrid. Bilbao showed me the ability to reinvent itself for cities. Wellington made me understand the importance of urban greenery, both as infrastructure and as leisure spaces. And Barcelona, has taught me to understand the importance of political courage and citizen disagreement to evolve hand in hand, facing the challenges of the 21st century.
For me, urban challenges today must be addressed from a transversal and inclusive perspective. I think cities need strategy, and they need participation as well. But above all, I am convinced that cities need to know and accept their challenges; and be brave in its implementation.
