Dr Constanza Gonzalez Mathiesen

An accredited architect and urban planner, Constanza Gonzales-Mathiesen’s PhD investigated ways that spatial planning can change its practices by identifying, mainstreaming and putting into action new considerations about bushfire risk management. Constanza’s research is contributing to the understanding of ways of improving spatial planning capacity for bushfire risk management. Drawing on her research findings, Constanza co-authored a chapter in the 2020 book, Understanding Disaster Risk: A Multidimensional Approach, called ‘Developing guidelines for increasing the resilience of informal settlements exposed to bushfire risk using a risk-based planning approach’.

Constanza now works as a researcher in the Faculty of Architecture at the Universidad del Desarrollo in Chile.

Her thesis is available here.
