His focus of interest lies in the intersection of sustainable regional planning and digital urbanism.

During his career, he coordinated large-scale urban transformation proposals and elaborated strategies and guidelines for multi-stakeholders programmes. He managed partnerships with international and local organizations, supported publications and capacity-building activities, and prepared concept notes and donor reports.
