Geographer and doctorate student on pedestrian mobility and use of public space

This is Carlos.

Carlos is a Geographer with a strong background in Cartography and Geographic Information Systems. After having worked as an environmental analyst, he focused his career path towards Sustainable Urban Mobility as a researcher at the University of Malta.
He firmly believes that pedestrian needs, perceptions, and feelings should play a key role in studying, planning, and designing public space. This is why he founded Walking Malta, a community research project where every day pedestrians play a significant role in his research, aimed to raise awareness while influencing and assisting policy towards a more pedestrian-friendly in Malta.
