Antonio Moya Latorre

I am a musician and an architect from Valencia (Spain) who became an urban planner. Before embarking on my doctoral adventure, I obtained my Master's in City Planning at MIT with a fellowship from La Caixa and worked at the MIT Community Innovators Lab (CoLab) and the Presencing Institute. My research explores how a culture-oriented approach to community planning can leverage existing institutions to advance community self-determination, well-being, and equitable human flourishing in Latin America. As a researcher and practitioner, I have collaborated with underserved communities in Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil.

I am currently a PhD student in City and Regional Planning at Cornell University.
