Introduction
My areas of expertise relate to the theory and practice of contemporary architectural design. The architectural composition and the study of the domestic space are the main focus of my research interests, specifically, where the public nature of architecture is investigated in regards to urban life in high-density urban configurations. Other areas of expertise involve the study of the interior design, public art installations, spatial design, urban morphology and building typology.
