PHD dissertation topic : « Walking, a factor of marginality or autonomy? The case of poor suburban’s residents of the Mexico urban area ». Under the direction of Jérôme Monnet and Miguel Angel Aguilar, Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana sede Iztapalapa (UAM-I),
The activities of the Mexico Center focus mainly on the themes of mobility and access to urban resources. The coordinator's research project is to (re) place the practice of walking at the heart of the analysis of urban mobility in Latin American metropolises, and more specifically in socially and geographically marginalized areas. He aims to take a new look at the issues of access to the city for the most marginalized populations living on the outskirts, by focusing on pedestrian mobility. One of the center’s priorities is to set up and support scientific events that bring together different actors: doctoral students, academics, artists, civil society, etc.
