Nina obtained a master degree in Urbanism and Spatial Planning (2018) and Interior Architecture (2015) at the faculty of Design sciences at the University of Antwerp. From 2018 to 2021 she was project manager of two Erasmus+ projects on innovative learning methods in Latin American and Caribbean higher education focusing on sustainable (urban) development. Since 2019 she worked on research projects commissioned by Flemish and local authorities such as an exploration of the spatial and environmental impact of the sharing economy in Flanders; a participation experiment as part of a neighbourhood-oriented strategy to the 'capping' of the Antwerp ring road; and a study on quantitative indicators and guidelines for sustainable urban planning and design.
She coordinated the International Design Workshop week in 2022 which invites (inter)national academics/designers/artists to host a transdisciplinary workshop for master students of the Faculty of Design Sciences and the Academy of Fine Arts.
Nina works currently for the Design Sciences Hub where she leads the MobiCap project investigating mobility capabilities of residents in Linkeroever, Antwerp.
