Introduction
I am a PhD Candidate at the UCL Institute of the Americas. I hold an MSc in Sustainable Urbanism from The Bartlett and I am a qualified architect in Mexico. My PhD is in dialogue with three types of urban literature: urban regeneration, urban heritage and public space in the light of place attachment and memory of place. My research examines the social effects of urban heritage and regeneration policies on urban life in historic public spaces in Mexico City’s Historic Centre.
