Researcher

Francesc Baró

  • Research interest:

    I am an (urban) environmental scientist. My research is motivated by making cities inclusive, healthy, liveable, resilient and sustainable for all. In order to understand the complexity of urban social-ecological systems, I conduct applied research at the interface of urban ecology, urban geography, urban planning and ecosystem service science. My interdisciplinary research approach combines geospatial modelling, advanced quantitative and qualitative data analysis and participatory methods. I serve as advisor for local and metropolitan governments and other organizations, and I have been involved in several international research projects on urban ecosystem services, green infrastructure and nature-based solutions.
