Damiano Cerrone / MSc / PhD in the making


I am Project Researcher at Tampere University of Technology and director at SPIN Unit, a transnational urban research network combining art and science to find new, creative approaches to urban studies and advanced data solutions. I am also involved in external collaboration as Principal Researcher at Michael Sorkin’s TERREFORM CAUR in New York, Associate at the Spatial Ethnography Lab and Postopia. I led research and consulting projects in Europe, U.S.A., and Russia with planning offices and public administration to develop new urban analytics and guidelines for interaction-based planning. In 2015, I received the ESRI Young Scholar award and in 2016 I was awarded the Golden globe of digital geography from the Geoknowledge Foundation. I’m currently writing my dissertation on the conceptual framework of Urban Meta-morphology, method and a toolbox to analyse spatial accessibility, activity patterns, and socio-economic metrics to map the relations between the tangible and the intangible forms of the city. My work builds bridges between scientific research and urban management, to innovate in urban planning practice through digital urban analysis and policy making.

This is my blog, a collection of findings and racing thoughts.
