He has Master´s degrees in City Planning (MCP) from the University of Pennsylvania (U.S.A.) and in Interior Architecture (MIARC) from the University of Oregon (U.S.A). With his multi-disciplinary design background, he is keenly interested in the theoretical, pedagogical and praxis aspects of design not only as object and process but also in its spatial expression at both the interior and urban scales. His academic, professional, and research interests and experience are in the intersection of design at its various scales [object, interior, architecture, urban] with social, cultural, and human factors, in addressing pressing societal challenges, and its implications for sustainable outcomes and a better quality of life in the built environment.
