  • Bio

  • Mauro Pereira is a PhD student in the urbanism course in the Faculty of Architecture on Lisbon University. In his PhD research, he is studying the relationship between the built environment and health using the concept of walkability.

    In his previous research, he was working in built environment measures, accessibility measures – mostly by active modes – and their relationship with physical activity. The relation with health naturally occurs by the research work and by the interdisciplinary contacts with other specialists, for instance, from the health field. Mauro Pereira has also worked in several planning processes in the regional and local scales.
