Inês Boavida-Portugal

University of Lisbon

Inês is an Assistant Professor at the Universidade de Lisboa’s Institute of Geography and Spatial Planning (IGOT-ULisboa). Her recent work explores urban tourism patterns and spatial planning responses to gear cities towards future sustainable pathways. To explore these phenomena, Inês uses a mixed-method approach including Geographical Information Systems and Information and Communication Technologies. She has been particularly interested in the application of such methodologies to study how behavioural changes at the micro-level (governance triangle: civil society, governments, markets) can produce critical changes at the macro-level in urban systems, specifically focusing on tourism dynamics as a disruptive phenomenon.
