Carme Machí Castañer is PhD in Environmental Science & Urban Planning (2018) at the University of São Paulo (Brazil), Bachelor and Master studies in Architecture & Urban Planning at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain), and European Masters in Urbanism (EMU Program), focused on City, Territory & Sustainable Development, taught in English by staff and at the facilities of Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC), Università di Venezia (IUAV) and the Katholiek Universiteit of Leuven (KU-Leuven). From 2009 to 2014, she participated in projects for architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture in Spain, Morocco, Italy, Brazil, Vietnam and Russia. In 2012, she moved to Brazil and collaborated in the re-urbanization programs for the informal neighborhoods of Mauá and Paraisópolis (São Paulo), the environmental rehabilitation project ?Lagoas do Norte? (World Bank?s supported program for Teresina, in Piauí?s State) and the Public Calls Renova São Paulo and Arco Tietê, which study area was a 17km riverside of São Paulo. Since June 2014, Carme participated in 4 Research Projects for São Paulo, focused on traffic calming strategies, sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDs) and urban stream restoration, with the University of São Paulo, Cornell University, the NGO Aguas Claras and São Paulo?s State private industries and public entities. In 2015, she started to collaborate on the notation of sequence of spatial operations in Geo-spatial Information Systems (GIS) with Prof. Dr. Giacaglia (FAU/USP). In 2016, Dr.Pellegrino, Prof.Brian Davis (Cornell University) and Carme, collaborated on the Big Pool; Little Pool Research Project, which focused on sustainable water management for São Paulo. During 2016, she assisted Prof. Davis on the submission of 2 grant proposals to the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future ACSF (Cornell University). In 2017, she was a Visiting Scholar at Cornell University through the ACSF?s Academic Venture Funds and co-organizer of the International Symposium Living with Water at Cornell. From February to April 2017, she researched planning and sizing approaches for bio-retention systems and wetlands with Prof. Dr. Thomas Whitlow (Cornell Horticulture Dep) and Prof. Dr. Todd Walter?s Soil Laboratory students (Cornell Biolog Envir Eng Dep) at Cornell through FAPESP?s Abroad Fellowship. Concurrently, she reviewed LA?s Master students Final Projects and drafted the proposal Developing Sustainable StormWater Management solutions in Monsoon Climates with Dr. Maria Goula (Cornell LA Dep) and Dr. Walter. In 2018, she presented her Ph.D. results at the SSC-Moscow (Russia) and H-ISUFZaragoza (Spain) International Conferences. She conducted a 4-months Research Internship at the Water and Environment Research Institution (IIAMA) in Valencia (Spain) focused on modelling horizontal sub-surface flow wetlands through Fapesp?s Ph.D. Fellowship. After her Ph.D., she works as an external collaborator of GITECO?s group (University of Cantabria in Spain) to help on the expansion of the Spanish SuD?s network to Latin America. She has been invited to the Re-Thinking the Green City and the Envisioning Future Green-Cities International Workshops, celebrated in the University of Brasília through the Newton?s Funds. She is a research team member on the topic of Low Impact Development for the Project Águas da Mantiqueira, coordinated by Toyota?s Foundation in Brazil. She is also International Committee Member for the LID Conference, to be held in Washington in 2020, Board Member of the EngiTech Conference for 2020 and Reviewer Member of the Land Degradation & Development Journal. The aforementioned investigations gave her the opportunity to work within trans-disciplinary research teams for furthering NbS in extensive urbanized areas of humid sub-tropical developing countries.
