Rita has an Integrated Master in Civil Engineering, given by Instituto Superior Técnico (University of Lisbon), where she mainly focussed in the field of Urban Planning, Transportation and Systems. After finishing her degree she worked for about three months working at a Transportation Systems company and, for the rest of the year, she collaborated with her University to develop and revise the Municipality of Sines’ Master Plan. For her final project, she studied the development and modelling of Smart Cities and if, for that, the opened standard CityGML could be used. With this she realised that technology and innovation alone cannot move the world forward, cities need to keep up and be prepared to receive these current developments. Through AAPS she hopes to keep exploring the concept of smart cities (transportation and urban planning) and investigating how they can develop alongside the current advancements in the automotive industry. She enjoys lifelong learning to approach collaboratively new challenges in a team, working towards collective goals for the public good.
