I’m currently Arup’s masterplanning and urban design skills leader for Europe and am currently based in Milan

I trained as an architect, and my PhD was on the interactions between architecture and urban planning. I have international experience in strategic planning, urban planning, masterplanning and urban design. 

Before joining Arup I worked on several urban developments, advising public and private bodies in Italy and abroad. 

I enjoy lecturing, teaching and writing about urban planning. I’ve written several books and articles on cities and urban regeneration. Among my recent commitments, I'm an adjunct professor at the School of Civil Architecture, Politecnico di Milano.
