Nuno Norte Pinto


Current Teaching at the University of Manchester

Nuno’s teaching focuses on the development and use of quantitative approaches and methodologies to urban planning and spatial analysis.

This includes multiple approaches using data, geographical information systems (GIS) and decision-support methods applied to a multitude of problems in planning, transport, development and environmental issues.
