Researcher at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) - Erasmus University Rotterdam
Jeniffer am a curious researcher at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) - Erasmus University Rotterdam where she is involved in education, research, and projects focused on sustainable urban development. Mainly, she is interested in environmental governance, and climate change mitigation (both production and consumption approaches). Jeniffer plans to expand further my knowledge of complex systems and governance.
Passionate about cities, since 2011 Jeniffer voluntarily advocate for sustainable cities through innovative projects, such as Curativos Urbanos ("Urban Bandages"). In 2014 she co-founded Bela Rua, a not-for-profit organisation that creates awareness of urban issues and improves public spaces in Brazil through a participatory approach. Bela Rua developed RUA3, a method to study people's behaviour in public spaces by combining experimentation, survey, and placemaking approaches.
