Research Fellow WP4
Translating Research into Practice | The Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL
I am a Research Fellow in the working package 'Translating Research into Practice' for KNOW. We focus on investigating the challenges of knowledge translation processes at the global and local levels, and support city research partners to influence policy and planning practices.
I am an urbanist and architect with a PhD in Development Planning and MSc Building & Urban Design in Development, from The Bartlett Development Planning Unit, University College London. I have worked as a practitioner, researcher, and teacher in Chile and the UK, with experience of fieldwork and teaching in Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa.
My practice has focused primarily on urban development, housing policies, participatory urban design, urban informality, and housing reconstruction; and I’ve worked both in academic institutions as well as in independent NGOs. I have a special interest in linking research, advocacy, planning practices, and policies. My PhD research focused on the challenges faced by housing policies in reducing urban inequalities, in the Chilean context.
