Dr. Diana Alvarez-Marin

Spatial Data Scientist

Diana is a spatial data scientist, architect and researcher. She is co-author of the book “A Quantum City, Mastering the Generic” around which she pursued her PhD “Atlas of Indexical Cities: Articulating Personal City Models On Generic Infrastructural Ground”. Her research explores the shift from mapping to modelling taking place under the influx of abundant information and the role of the observer in these articulations.

Diana graduated with honours from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture et de Paysage de Lille, France. For several years she collaborated with O.M.A. in Rotterdam and group8 in Geneva. She attended the MAS program in CAAD at ETH Zürich from 2011-2012. From 2013- 2016 she was visiting researcher at the Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore.

She has taught several courses for architecture students around her research on cities: “A Quantum City: Mastering the Generic” and “Indexical Cities: Articulating your own city of Indexes”. She loves writing and thinking in both natural and programming languages.
