I am currently a PhD candidate at the Melbourne School of Design. My research project investigates informal public transport operations in the context of tourism, specifically focusing on the role of informal public transport workers in the tourism sector. Broadly, my research interests include tourism planning, transport planning, and traffic engineering.
I was a DOST-ERDT (Department of Science and Technology – Engineering Research and Development for Technology) scholar at De La Salle University, Philippines. In 2014, I obtained my Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil Engineering with a Transportation Engineering specialization from the university. I have five years of experience working as a traffic/highway design engineer for Manila-based consultancies.
