Research activities

My academic interest is to find new approaches to improve urban sanitation services and technical networks. I am concerned with research projects that have an interdisciplinary vision and aim at a better understanding of environmental and urban planning problems related to public or municipal services, based on an urban data, spatial analysis or network-oriented approach.

Methodologies used in past and current projects include urban configuration and environmental impact analysis, service optimization, applied graph theory, exploitation of urban data and/or open data.  

The techniques used in my projects and that I consider essential for the environmental disciplines are the geographic information systems associated with machine learning and visualizations methods (such as GIS automation, Geo-Python, among others). 


Teaching Activities

My teaching experience and interest include courses on geographic information systems, environmental impact and problems, environmental engineering fundamentals and statistics.



Urban environmental services, urban data analysis, geo-informatics, SIG, visualization and applied graph theory.
