Identifying Spatial Patterns

Biography

I have recently graduated from a master's degree programme in Urban and Regional Planning at Stockholm University. I hold another Master's degree in planning from the University of Granada. As for the experience in the field, I have worked for a few years on spatial planning projects and research initiatives in Georgian context, mostly using GIS and spatial modelling. My research interests include mobility infrastructures, networks, segregation and planning practice. I have a strong interest in data analysis and visualization as well and am running a very cool project, such as z.axıs. Drop an email for a possible collaboration.
