Leticia Izquierdo Garcia

City Science
  • Visiting Student

An architect by training, Leticia uses both architecture and technology to address international social issues, including concerns about equity and the safety and security of people within the public space. In the context of these concerns, she is recently designing applications of urban modeling, as well as using decentralized participation systems for governance in informal communities in Mexico.

Prior to researching in the City Science group, she received a Master's of Computational Design at UPM with Honors, and simultaneously worked as an assistant teacher at the university. Previously, she received a five-year B.A. degree in Architecture from the School of Architecture of Madrid and the Arkitektskolen of Aarhus (Denmark). During this time, she practiced design in architectural studios in Spain and India, where she worked with the Pritzker prizewinner Balkrishna Doshi.  She also conducted research with the UNESCO-UPM Chair on Gender, Science, Innovation, and Technology.
