I'm an architect and urban designer. Currently, I'm a PhD researcher at the University of Manchester, where I'm developing my research on the influence of the built environment on people's behaviour. The challenge of urbanization and climate change on cities is significant, and thus more evidence-based research is required to promote healthy environments, where people can live, work, play and interact with each other. Therefore, my research stands on the need for promoting healthy contexts of where healthy lifestyles can be encouraged.
