Jorge Gil

Assistant Professor at 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 analysing and planning sustainable neighbourhoods, cities and regions in the domains of mobility of people and goods, health and well-being, liveability, urban metabolism, and energy transition. These models are based on Urban Analytics and Informatics methods with an open science approach: open data, open source spatial analysis, statistics and visualisation technology, and open access publication. Jorge has taught Spatial Decision Support Systems and GIS at the MSc Geomatics TU Delft, between 2015 and 2018. Jorge develops GIS and geo-database solutions for City Information Modelling (CIM) with a user centred approach, including spatial analysis, network analysis, machine learning and visualisation methods. Expertise in PostGIS, QGIS, Python, R, shell, SQL, javascript, C++, VB, VRML, 2D/3D graphics, interaction design (UI and UX).
