Jorge Gil

Assistant Professor at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Urban Design and Planning

Jorge Gil earned in 2016 a PhD in Urbanism from the TU Delft, and in 2000 a MSc in Virtual Environments from the Bartlett, UCL. His primary research focus is on the development of integrated urban network models for City Information Modelling (CIM) using open data and open source spatial analysis, statistics and visualisation technologies. These GIS models are applied in urban planning research and practice in the domains of sustainable mobility of people and goods, and energy transition. Jorge has taught Spatial Decision Support Systems and GIS at the MSc Geomatics TU Delft, between 2015 and 2018.
