Sónia Alves is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research, Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge and a Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Social Sciences (University of Lisbon).
Within the framework of her Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, she is currently developing PLANAFFHO. PLANAFFHO (PLANning for AFFordable HOusing) aims to examine how land-use planning contributes to the provision of affordable housing for low-income people and how it has promoted a mix of housing tenures within new developments in three capital cities - Copenhagen, Lisbon, and London - since 2007.
