  • Bio

  • Samira Elias is a doctoral student in Urbanism from the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Lisbon – FAUL (since 2014), to investigate the “determining relationships between Urban Form and Urbanity” – the study focuses on identifying the determinant factors that form the condition of urbanity in urban space. The research is subsidized with the Capes – Brazil under the guidance of José Nuno Beirão and Carlos Dias Coelho.

    Samira graduated as Architect and Urbanist (2004-2009) and she is Master in Geography (2010-2012), at the Federal University of Mato Grosso, with research on urban quality in Brazilian historical centres. Her current interest in research focuses on investigating if the quality of urban form can favour urbanity in Brazilian urban space.
