Fernanda Cruz Rios, PhD
Circular Economy and the Built Environment
I am a built environment scientist who is fascinated by complex systems, convergence research, community engagement, and sustainability. My professional background in Architecture, Urban Planning, and Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering gives me a unique perspective of the complex challenges of buildings and cities. Currently, my main research focus is the Circular Economy. Above all, I strive to understand and include the “human in the equation” in engineering problems and contribute to sustainable, resilient, and equitable built environments.
