MA Cultural Analysis, University of Amsterdam
Master of Urban Planning, McGill University
Dea graduated from the University of Amsterdam with a graduate degree in Cultural Analysis that focused on city theory. She recieved a Master's in Urban Planning from McGill University with a Transportation Speciality. Rapidly growing urban populations and environmental concerns have motivated her to question how cities can become more environmentally and socially sustainable. She is inspired by collaborations between academic researchers, planners, policy makers, and other stakeholders that question how initiatives in clean technology can become normative rather than alternative in urban centres around the world. Dea’s current interests include public transit satisfaction and loyalty, land use and transportation planning, pedestrian and cyclist safety, and innovations in Transit Oriented Development.
