Ms Sonia Freire Trigo

The Bartlett School of Planning (University College London)

I had a career as an urban planner after I got my BArch and MArch degrees at Coruña University (UDC - Spain). I worked five years for the private sector delivering a range of urban projects, from medium size master plans to street refurbishments, being involved in both their design and management processes.

Due to my previous experience, I became interested in the interactions between the urban and regional scales of planning and decided to take an MSc degree in Regional and Urban Planning at Madrid University (UPM - Spain). During that period, I took part in two research projects: the delivery of a best practice catalogue of urban agriculture experiences across Spain, for Vitoria’s city council; and the assessment of the sustainability of Madrid’s social housing existing stock, with Professor Luis Moya.

I joined the Bartlett School of Planning in 2012. Since then, I have been a Postgraduate Teacher Assistant for Professor Matthew Carmona’s MSc Urban Design: Place Making and for Dr. Jessica Ferm’s Urban Project Management module. In addition, I have worked on a research project with Professor Mike Raco (UCL) and Dr. Emma Street (University of Reading) and another research project with Dr. Claudio de Magalhães (UCL), funded by RICS Research Trust.

Finally, I have been Treasurer of the RGS-IBG Planning and Environment Research Group (PERG). [http://planningenvironment.org/] since September 2013.
