I’m a researcher at Universidad de Chile and lecturer at Universidad San Sebastian. I hold a Master of Urban Design from the University of Melbourne and my research interests include informal urban informality, urban morphology and green infrastructure in Latin American cities. My recently published paper “Morphogenesis of Informal Settlements in Chile” investigates the properties of informal urban morphologies and the morphogenic processes that generate them. By examining four different cases in Chile where informal settlements have been dramatically increasing during the last decades‚ this study sheds light on the logics and patterns that emerge from a range of informal morphologies.
