    Concurrently, he is developing a platform for crowd-sourced urban network analysis, participating in the Convex and Solid-Voids DCG research project and working on new methods of space syntax, population mapping, and data analysis for urban research.

    He has worked in architecture and urban design offices in Rome, London, and Lisbon, on housing, commercial, and institutional projects, as well as environmental mapping and analysis. He has seen his work exhibited in London, Lisbon and Cascais, and worked with artists and scenographers on interdisciplinary projects at the Cochrane Theatre and the Battersea Arts Centre, as well as producing urban installations and interventions in London.
