Approaches to urban and spatial reasoning

Francesco Pilla’s area of expertise is geospatial analysis and modelling of environmental dynamics, which involves the development of environmental pollution models (air, noise, water) and decision support tools using a GIS platform. The work focuses on understanding complex environmental phenomena in order to pre-empt the impacts resulting from the interactions between human population and the environment.

The H2020-SC5-funded iSCAPE project, coordinated by Dr. Pilla, makes use of this expertise on GIS based tools as a way to integrate co-design (as part of Living Labs) in urban planning and pervasive sensing (static and mobile as part of citizen science initiatives) to improve city life from an environmental pollution perspective.
