PhD Supervision

I welcome applications from students who are interested in exploring the use of quantitative approaches applied to planning. I am particularly interested in the use of urban simulation models – cellular automata, agent-based modelling among other methods.

I also welcome applications from students who want to do research in planning in the context of Iberian and Latin-American countries.

Prospective candidates are invited to send me an email with a research proposal at any time. Please see also how to apply to a PhD at SEED and P&EM here.
