Assistant Professor

About Me

Léon's research programme (ZoARG | ReDUCE) focuses on inner (smart) city construction, particularly at the available technologies (decision support systems, visualization tools, but also onsite equipment) that facilitate and streamline work along the construction life cycle of urban subsurface utilities. Key words: technology development, implementation & project management

One of the main issues during society’s transition toward smarter cities relates to the maintenance and upkeep of public infrastructure. It becomes more complicated, for example, to add new networks (e.g. fiber optics, smart grids, submerged waste transport etc.) and maintain existing buried utilities. Besides the physical limitations, information uncertainty (inaccurate or incomplete maps) and coordination issues caused by privatization make add more complexity to execution of inner city streetworks. The ZoARG | ReDUCE research programme that I lead aims to study and improve the existing situation by. Key research activities are centered on information, coordination and supporting technologies. Currently, we have a growing research and industry consortium that collaboratively:

  • Identifies how subsurface information can be effectively modelled to support life cycle decisions;
  • Further develops and implements subsurface mapping technologies, practices, and codes;
  • Implements detection and information solutions in practice to iteratively improve the tools, engage practice in advancing the field of smart inner city engineering, and develop new education curricula for inner city engineering.
