Biografía Originally from Mexico, Alejandra Castro Giron is an M.Sc. in Environmental Studies for Urban Sustainability and M.Sc. in Spatial Planning by the University of Aalborg and TU Dortmund, respectively. She is a researcher at the Centre for Social Science Research of the Social Sciences Faculty of TU Dortmund, and part of the consortium for the Horizon 2020 Project “T-Factor”. In T-Factor, Alejandra provides support and guidance to cities looking to employ temporary uses in their urban regeneration masterplans, while helping them develop innovative approaches for city co-creation. For the past year, Alejandra’s research has focused on analysing how the understanding of “temporary uses” by different stakeholders can influence the perceived impact of these implementations. Currently, she is focused on understanding how these urban uses can be implemented as a tool for the localization, pursuit, and measurement of the Sustainable Development Goals in the context of urban regeneration processes.
