Research fields

  • spatial analysis and modelling
  • geovisualisation, cartography and mapping
  • urban and regional planning
  • natural risk management

Current project

I actually participate to the CONCUR project coordinated by Anna Hersperger. My aim is to oporationalize the theoretical model created by Simona R. Grădinaru, Eduardo Oliveira and Sofia Pagliarin.

Past project

During my Ph.D. thesis, I participated at several projects:

  • CRI
  • RISKMAP
  • CART_ASUR
  • TRUC
