Tatiana Moreira de Souza is a lecturer in Planning. Her research interests span urban regeneration, neighbourhood change, neighbourhood and community, and housing policy. Her research has focussed on how residents interact in neighbourhoods that have undergone urban regeneration, on social mix policies and the governance of diversity, and on rental housing, particularly security of tenure and the regulation of short- and long-term rental housing.
Before joining the University of Liverpool, Tatiana worked as a lecturer and research fellow at Oxford Brookes University and as a research associate at University College London. She has taught in urban and international planning, urban regeneration, housing, and urban design modules, and undertaken internationally comparative mixed-method research. Some of the research projects she worked on includes the €6.5 million EU FP7-funded research project DIVERCITIES, during which she gained in-depth knowledge of issues related to migration, ethnic minority entrepreneurship and the governance of diversity in a European comparative perspective, and on a project led by Professor Claire Colomb, from UCL that investigates the regulatory responses from 12 European cities to the rapidly developing phenomenon of short-term (holiday) rentals, facilitated by online platforms.
Tatiana holds a BSc in Architecture and Urbanism from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a MSc in Urban Regeneration and a PhD in Planning Studies from University College London.
