I am an urban planner and designer working in Arup's planning team based in Abu Dhabi. 

I have been involved in projects that ranged from small place making interventions to city-wide regeneration strategies, and from large greenfield developments and strategic plans in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa.

I am a passionate believer in creating spaces and places for people first and a keen proponent of regeneration and compactness of urban environments.  Growing up in historic and vibrant European urban environments, I am keen to help create better urban environments in the Middle East, where I have been working and living for the past four years.

I relish combining my professional awareness in planning and design with my interest in anthropology, human geography and history in order to better understand and make the most of these interdependencies.
