Personal profile

Research interests

Victor is an urban planner by training and holds a PhD in geography from the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA, UCL). Between 2009-​2012, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (University of Pennsylvania) and served as Chief Science Officer for Strategic Spatial Solutions, Inc. Victor is a native of Canada and Brazil and is fluent in five languages.

Victor’s research combines real world and laboratory experiments to investigate various topics in spatial cognition, environmental health and ageing. He is particularly interested in understanding individual differences in navigation and the extent to which locomotion and wayfinding depend on amodal spatial representations. Much of his research relies on the development of immersive virtual environments that can mimic real-​world situations. This work has resulted in a series of collaborations with other scholars in computer science, public health, landscape architecture, education and the digital humanities.
