I possess a multi-disciplinary academic background including urban and regional planning, quantitative geography and environmental sciences. I consider myself a quantitative urban geographer, who research in the domain of environmental problems in urban areas. I completed by Bachelor degree on Urban and regional planning, with specialisation in sustainable urban transportation and emission modelling. Then I completed my master's degree in Geographical Information Science (GISc) from the University of Manchester. My master's works mostly focused on spatial data analysis and advanced spatial modelling. My PhD research focuses on the environmental health issues, and I developed new approaches to model greenspace exposure using innovative geospatial methods and big-spatial data.
