My doctoral research is framed in the European FP7 project "PASTA - Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches". I am looking into the influence of the social and the built environment in cycling behaviour change.
Professional and educational background
I specialised in cycling mobility since my final dissertation for Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences in 2004 (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). By then, I had already collaborated with UN Habitat Spanish Committee initiative Sustainable Cities (Ciudades para un Futuro más Sostenible) at the School of Architecture of Madrid (Escuela Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid) and had started to work as a consultant in cycling advocacy groups and private consultancies. I combined my consultancy work with further education: a second Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Studies (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), and a Masters in Mobility Management (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). In 2012, I undertook an internship at the European Commission, DG Mobility and Transport, at the Sustainable Urban Mobility Unit. In 2014 I also gained a Masters in Environmental Sciences with a Major in Ecological Economics and Environmental Management at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
