Research Support Officer: Ethics, Integrity, and Data Policy

About Me

I'm currently the Research Support Officer in Ethics, Integrity, and Data Policy at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation-- ITC. Prior I was a Postdoctoral researcher in the NWO-funded project, INECIS, in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and Geospatial Information Management (PGM) at ITC.

My prior professional and academic experience was on various projects related to the exploration of participatory and socio-spatial approaches. Most recently on mobile geospatial technologies aiming to work together with underrepresented communities and other institutional and civic actors in local, urban and regional planning projects. In these projects, I worked together with several communities in Colombia, Indonesia, and Germany and with civic collectives in Spain, as well as with diverse institutions such as universities, schools, local governments, UN agencies, architecture studios, and NGOs. In 2018, I obtained a PhD in Geoinformatics from the Institute for Geoinformatics at the University of Münster in Germany. The PhD research was done as part of the ITN- Marie Skłodowska-Curie project “GEO-C” which aimed to investigate and develop strategies and tools for enabling Open Smart Cities. My topic of research was on the exploration and adaptation of participatory design approaches to ideate digital (geospatial) services with forcibly displaced population to support their (re)settlement in their host city.

My current research interests are related to the exploration of geo-ethics and participatory processes being carried out by diverse actors related to the use or development of (geospatial) technologies and data to understand and shape inclusive planning focused on, mostly, urban environments and communities.
